my periods were really irregular and over the years I stopped trying to track them and so when i went to the doctor and told her I dont know when my last one was(i was not sexually active) she told me to just start to take it and that my body would adjust. I did and the third day into it(i was very good with taking it on time) I had sex with my boyfriend. We used a condom. But I am not onto my 5 white pill and no period... this is my first birthcontrol..should I be concerned?
If you used a condom you would have been protected.
However if you had just relied on the pill you would not have been protected after 3 days. It takes 7 days to be protected ... i.e. you have to take 7 active tablets on 7 consecutive days to be protected. Some doctors would say to take extra protection for 1 month when you start taking a pill.
