Hello and welcome to HCM,

This has most likely happened as you have taken two pills in a day. They are known to cause nausea and vomiting. This is not food poisoning so do not worry.
If you are feeling all right now, there is no need to worry.
Continue your pills as directed and try not to miss any more pills as it will decrease the contraceptive efficacy.

Hope this satisfies your query.
Thanks for using HCM.
