I started taking Levlen for the first time on my most recent cycle. I got my period on a Thursday which means I took 3 inactive pills (Thursday-Saturday) and have been taking the active pills since then (Sunday-Wednesday). I have plans to see my boyfriend tonight (Thursday) when I will have taken 5 consecutive active pills. Will I be protected if I have sex without barrier protection tonight or do I need to wait until Saturday when I will have taken 7 consecutive active pills? I have been taking the pills at the same time every day.
