Customer Question

Hi I'm just wanting some clarification. I've currently fell pregnant again after being on the pill. When I'm nervous, upset etc I get episodes of diarrhoea. Can this affect the pill and how it works?

Hello and welcome to Ja. No that doesnt affect the pill at all. The failure rate of the pill is about 3/1000. Were you on the mini pill? Did you miss any pills or start any packs late?

No the progeston only one. Never missed a pill. I suffer from diarrhoea a lot I was told by own doctor it refused the effectiveness?
