the pill...
Hi doc
I have an eating disorder that i am trying to work through, i'm bulemic and have been to counceling etc but a question was raised by my boyfreind regarding my contraception. I'm taking triphasil in the mornings, i've been throwing up once or twice a week, usually in the afternoons. Will this have an effect my pill in any way?

Vomiting will affect the absorption of the Pill and can therefore interfere with its efficacy.
