Of my first pack without a period. I started it on a tuesday the day I had my dr. App. And got it filled, she didnt mention or say anything about how to take it so i just went ahead a started on the tuesday pill. I didnt double up on them to get caught up. I havnt missed a pill but i have been taking them up to 2 hours early (whenever my son wakes up ill take it so i dont forget before the crazy day starts) so the time always fluctuates between 9-11am. But never later then that. On the 7th day we had unprotected sex and im not sure how big my chances are of being pregnant now is...
If you had read the paper that came with them, you would have seen directions. Why in the heck did you double up? You would just be a tuesday start. I do hope you've been using a condom because you dont' have a clue what you're doing with the pills. Then they tell you not to have unprotected sex for 7 days, you have sex a day early. When you have take 7 of the active pills you can have unprotected sex. I would be sure to use that condom.
I'm not sure what posts you read that said you should have doubled up but you dont need to do that. You did fine other than not starting Day 1 of your period or the first Sunday after so you might be a little more irregular in your cycle for a few months. You should have been protected after taking seven consecutive days of active pills so I think you are okay. Most important is to take a pill each day and try to take them at roughly the same time of day, give or take an hour or two and you are doing this. No birth control method is 100% effective but the Pill can be 98-99.9% effective when taken correctly so at most, you have from less than 1 and up to 2 % chance for pregnancy.
