Question: Hi,

I took the morning after pill and 10minutes after taking it I had diarrhoea. Do I need to take the pill again?
Answered by Dr. Bonnie Berger-Durnbaugh 50 minutes later
Brief Answer:
The diarrhea will not affect the efficacy of the pill you took.

Detailed Answer:

If you vomited 10 minutes after taking the pill I would say yes, take another. But 10 minutes isn't enough time for the pill to have gotten into your large intestine, so having had diarrhea should not be a problem.

So you should be fine with the pill you took.

I hope this information helps.
