I just started taking Levora-28 this month, but I started taking them on a Tuesday about a week after my period... essentially on my pack, there are two pills that I didn't take (Sunday and Monday), but for the rest, I have been religiously taking them at the same exact time each day. In about two days, I would be done with the white active pills and starting the inactive, peach pills. My question is, is it okay to have sex on my inactive week even though I didn't take the first 2 days of the pack? Thank you very much!
Why didnt you take the first active pills? You should be taking 21 days of active pills then take the 7 days inactive pills in most packs. Most packs that have the days of the week written (Monday, Tuesday etc) you can shift the pills to match up with the correct day of the week, if they are not marked or you cant shift them, then you should ignore the days written and start the first pill on the first day you begin the pack, no matter which day of the week this is so that you take all 21 active pills. You should take the two pills you did not take before you start your placebo week or you may not be fully protected during your placebo week. If you take all the active pills, then take the placebo week, you will be protected during the placebo week. You need to be sure to take all the active pills in the pack for them to work properly. Does this make sense to you what I am saying?
