... gave no information on it had to research myself. Does that mean I wasn't protected at all and could be pregnant?
Yes, You probably should have waited for seven days. It takes time for the medication to get in through the skin and for it to begin working. This is not a barrier method meaning that it blocks sperm from reaching an egg. It is a hormonal method which takes time to work. You were probably not protected at all yet. Pregnancy is possible but not for certain. The only thing you can do at this point is to wait and see. keep using the patch as directed, be sure you thoroughly read the directions (there should be manufacturers directions in the box with the patches) and wait to see if your period comes. It is most likely that you are not pregnant as not every sexual encounter leads to pregnancy but it is possible.
