What should I do to get my pill out which is stuck in my nasal cavity ?

i got a birth control pill stuck in my nasal cavity how do i get it out? It sounds stupid, but I was taking my birth control pill and accidentally laughed as I went to swallow it, and now it is stuck in the nasal cavity and I can t seem to get it out. How do I dislodge it without having to seek medical attention? And will I have to use further protection or will the pill still be effective?

Is it causing any symptoms ? Where exactly in the nasal passages ? If it is lower down try to sneeze it out and if it is in the upper part then I would suggest you to see an ENT specialist.Yes you have to use further protection because it is not a nasal spray and absorption from the pill in the nose will not be 100%.
Best wishes
