I`m taking the mini pill, but could having diorreoah mean I could fall pregnant?

hi
i am currently taking the mini pill, i take it at the same time every night, recently i had diarrhea and we had sex the night before this started, i continued to take the pill while i was ill but i was wondering if it was the right time of the month to conceive, if i actually can get pregnant? haveing some symptoms this would be my third pregnancy.
thankyou

Answer: Hi, If the minipill was not actually digested then you are at risk of being fertile. The minipill if not taken as directed has a higher chance of failing than the combined pill. If you do have vomiting or diarrhea it is recommended to use another form of contraception as well as the minipill during this time. If you think that you may be pregnant you need to take a pregnancy test. Best wishes, Alex
