On the pill and took phenazopyridine......

Okay, so I'm on birth control and tonight I took phenazopyridine cause I feel like I have a bladder infection and needed to ease the pain a little. But then I thought I ought to look up the drug facts and happened to read that even though it's not an antibiotic it MAY effect the effectiveness of birth control. 10 minutes later I puked it up cause I don't want to mess around with that. It didn't all get out of my system though, cause my urine is dark orange like it would be if I took the phenazopyridine...

I took the phenazopyridine 4 hours after my birth control, vomited up a good deal of the I'm thinking I should be okay since by the time I took the phenazopyridine my birth control would have already metabolized and I won't take the phenazopyridine again....I also take my bc same exact time every day...not a minute late.

Do you think I'm gonna be okay? I really don't want another baby right now! I know, be more careful next time...but what do you guys think?

  • if you are faithful about your bc then you should be fine, one dose of Pyridium wouldnt affect the bc, it's during the course of the treatment it is better to use back up. Take Plan B if you are really worried, but you should be fine
