The reason why Carine is saying that pill is only 98-99%, is if it is not used correctly you can fall preggies.

To use correctly:
*Drink it at the same time every day (more or less), like just before going to bed or when you wake up in the morning.
*If you are on anibiotics, it cancels the working of the pill and you are NOT safe.
*If you have a stomach bug, gastro, diahreah, then the pill might be expelled from body due to runny stomach or vomiting and not absorbed to give you protection.
*After having gastro or antibiotics, it is best to refreign from intercourse until you have taken 8-10 active pill tablets, before you are safe again.

If you dont adhere to this you can fall pregnant.

All the above is explained in every packet of the pill.
