I take my Lo Ogestrel birth control pill at precisely the same time every night (11:30). Unfortunately, last night I got food poisoning from my restaurant dinner, and vomited at 4:30 AM, 5 hours after taking my birth control pill. I can't find information on how long these pills take to dissolve and absorb, and I need to know if this counts as missing a dose (since I don't have the pill to take two of them the next day as if I'd missed one). I'm going to assume I need to use secondary birth control methods for the rest of the month (and will speak to my doctor when I get a chance), but until then it would be great to find out if this might cause any problems (breakthrough bleeding, etc). Thanks for your responses!
