Almost 3 week with Safyral, should I use backup method while taking the light orange pills?

If you have been taking the active tablets continuously for the past 3 weeks then you should be safe now and if you wish then you don't need to use backup contraception.

Use back-up birth control (condoms or spermicide), for the first 7 days of using Safyral.
