I have been on birth control for 2 months now and I take the pill at the same exact time every morning. I forgot to take my last pill before I started my sugar pills for my period to start. I got my period and am supposed to start my next set of pills this Sunday, since I forgot the pill before my sugar pills and never took it, do I have to wait the first week, the first 7 pills of this new pack again before I will be protected again since I forgot the last pill? Please answer and thank you :)
Personally I would just continue as normal and start your new pills as normal, but if you are concerned you could surely put up with condoms for a week?
Conception early after your period is rare but seven days after that is approaching the danger zone; by which time the pill will be fully functional. I think you will be just fine.
Take care. :-)
