I took my placebo pills early so I could be done with my period by the time I went to see my boyfriend. I also didn't take my last 2 active pills before the placebo week. But I didn't skip them, I just took the placebo pills instead. I never went a day without taking a pill. I started my new active pills before my period was done. Had unprotected sex the day I started the active pills again. That was a Thursday. Friday I took my pill like normal, but Saturday I took my pill a couple hours later than normal but took it as soon as I remembered. I had unprotected sex that same day. Am I still okay? Thanks!
You can't do that. You don't manipulate the pills to suit you, its working with your body. You are not protected if you don't take 21 active pills then the 7 placebos. If you had sex the first day of active pills I would doubt your protection. What you should have done to avoid a period is skip the placebos, and start a new pack of pills instead.
