Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.If you are into the third week of the 21 pack pill, then once you became sick after ea ting something, it was right on your part to take 2 pills the next day to maintain contraception. It is suggested that as you got sick again on the next day, you should continue the pack with the single pill as you use to take. Now that you have had unprotected intercourse with your partner, considering the fact that ovulation is inhibited by oral contraceptive pills, then chances of pregnancy are minimal.You may take the 7 days break after finishing the pack, when your menses shall resume, which would further confirm that you are not pregnant. Just take a single pill daily till you finish the pack.I hope I have answered your query in detail.Wishing you good health.Regards
