welcome to healthcaremagic
If you vomit within 2-3 hours of taking a pill, the pill will not have been absorbed. If you are well enough, take another pill as soon as possible. Provided that you do not vomit this second pill and it is taken on the same day, then you will remain protected from pregnancy. If you continue to vomit, then it is the same as missing pills

Mild diarrhoea does not affect the absorption of the pill. Severe diarrhoea may affect it. So, if you have severe diarrhoea, consider this as the same as missing pills
NOthing to worry
