Had intestinal virus, diarrhea. Will birth control pill affect my BC?

I had an intestinal virus and had diarrhea for about 3 1/2 days. Still took my birth control pill and have been back to my normal physical activities without any symptoms from the virus. Would that affect my BC after that many days? I ve taken my pill for 7+ days after the virus and have been on the pill for a few years.

welcome to HCM,
as per the details you have given, you just recovered from Diarrhea ..but the diarrhea has nothing to do with the birth control pills, diarrhea causing viruses doesnt affect your body after you have been relieved completely.. so dont worry , nothing will happen..
