The last day of my pack is on Wednesday and I've decided to stop taking birth control pills. However, the last time I engaged in unprotected sex was last Wednesday. I've read that sperm live up to 5-7 days. So in my case it's 8 days that I would have been protected by the pill. So is it okay to stop taking the pills now？It's such a hassle to buy them because for some reason all the clinics nearest to me are experiencing flooding and I have no time and money to travel far for the pills. This is why I want to stop.
Thank you in advance for reading and answering my question.
I would advise you to use protection then. Babies are even more inconvenient.. It depends on which pill you're taking. If its a 21 pill pack, then you are protected for 7 days after you stopped the pill. If its a 28 day pack, then protection is over at the end of a pack.
