Thank you for your question. This single episode of a loose bowel movement should not have effected your oral contraceptive's ability to protect you against unwanted pregnancy. We recommend that you monitor yourself over the next 48 hours to make sure you have not contracted a gastrointestinal infection which could have caused this initial bout of loose stools.
