... my last day of my period with a very little spotting on the 16th. The gynecologist that prescribed it to me told me just to begin taking my pills on that day (Monday sept.16) and to not worry about Sunday's pill )which is when you usually start it) and just take Monday's pill. I forgot to ask her when I am safe to have sex. And I asked a nurse and she said she usually tells you to wait a week. I have now been on it 7 days and took all my pills on time except for one day I was An hour late. I'm confused because on the Internet it says after 7 days you are protected if you took all pills correctly, but I was told to just skip the first pill. So have I technically missed a pill? Does anyone know the answere to this question as to when I am safe to have sex? Thanks
