laxatives and birth control pill

Hi. I take Senna for my IBS constipation flare ups. I usually take my birth control around 6-7pm, and senna before I go to sleep. I usually go to the bathroom around 8:30-10:00 AM the next day. Is my pill still being absorbed correctly?

Yes, that should be totally fine.  Full absorption of the pill from the intestinal tract usually takes 2 to 3 hours.  :>))
