Hi: I started taking Noriday 9 days ago. We waited for a week, before having sex, but I had an upset stomach today (after lunch - I take my tablet at 10 at night). I appreciate that we now need to use a condom for 7 days: my question is do I have enough protection built up (if you like) from the tablets that I have already taken, considering I had sex yesterday (before my last pill)? I hope this makes sense: it probably seems a bit panicky (considering my age - 43 - but I haven't been on a pill for a long time). My weight is 72kg: medical history - generally well although suffer with migraines. Thank you

Thanks for your query.

If you started using Noriday from day one of your cycle then you are protected.But if you vomitted within 4 hrs of taking the pill,then absorption can be affected.It would be advisable to take added protection for 2 days after you stop vomitting while continuing the pill.
I would suggest you take the added protection just in case,you vomit again.

Thank you for your answer. When you state 'take the added protection', do you mean use condoms or do you mean take some other type of contraception?

Thank you

Thanks for the query,

I meant condoms.

As no hormonal method can be used along with that.

All the best.
