My boyfriend wants to have sex on my change day but he is scared that I could risk something.
Hello Janiceellen and welcome to DC. I am going to be straight up with you here. That is really rude and inconsiderate of you, don't you think??? There comes a greater responsibility when on BC pills to take them as directed and always at the same time. If you have taken at least one full cycle and have never missed a pill or taken them late; you should be okay. But to me, just the thought that he is asking when it might be unsafe for you??? Alternate methods of BC are used for the first entire month of the pill. You didn't mention how long you had been on them and he needs to come prepared for "no sex", if he isn't prepared and responsible, too. After all, I hope you two are together for more than simply sex... I am just laying it right out there for you. I wouldn't like it one bit if that was all that was on my bfs mind and not if I am safe and okay...
otherwise, he should come prepared himself to prove to you he understands the ramifications and that things CAN and DO go wrong. I say it like that because your question is lacking some basic information for me to give you an accurate reading or answer.
Also, with your question posted as "direct", people can only reply once. It always helps to post questions as "conversational" so that we can interact more. Did I answer your question at least to the point where you understand what is needed and necessary to have unprotected sex while on this BC method??? I can still "comment" but not reply like this...
I'm not sure what you mean by your change day. However if you take your pills every day like you're supposed to, you won't get pregnant. I am really confused as to why girls think there is a time during the month they will still get pregnant even tho they took the pills right.
