Sickness or diarrhoea for more than 24 hours
If you can, you should carry on taking your pills at the normal time, but you may need to use extra contraception, such as condoms.
If you continue to be sick, or have diarrhoea for more than 24 hours, count each day with sickness or diarrhoea as a day that you have missed your pill.
For advice on what to do if you have missed a pill, see:
- What should I do if I miss a pill (combined pill)?
- What should I do if I miss a pill (progestogen-only pill)?
