Do I need to worry about the effectiveness of my birth control pills if I had diarrhea within 1 hour after taking a pill? Should I take another one?

In brief: No

Even with diarrhea, the birth control pills will be effective.
You do not need repeat them for coverage. Just continue as prescribed and if new symptoms occur, i.e. emesis, fever or other issues, get back to us with a virtual appt with Health tap.
