I usually take birth control every month, I had a breakthrough bleed in my last week on my pills so I decided just to have my period. I believe it stopped the next Thursday and then I started my tri cyclen lo birth control the Monday after. I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 5 days after that... (Don't get on me about that everyone has there own choices) so am I high risk or would my birth control have been effective by then?
You cannot change the pattern of the pills. You have to take them according to the schedule. Doing this leaves you at risk. You should have waited a week for unprotected sex after not taking them correctly so that you had 7 active pills in your body first. You never alter your pill schedule due to bleeding.
