Hi! I have started taking birth control pills on the 17th of this month. This is my first time taking them. I haven't forgotten any pill, and I always take them on time (sometimes an hour later). I've been told that, if you take the pill from the first day of your period, you're protected after a week (so, that means, when taking your 7th pill). So, tiday I will take my 9th pill. And I'm still bleeding a bit (it's spotting), guess it is because it's the first time I'm on birth control. Is it safe if I have unprotected sex with my boyfriend, today? Or is spotting a sing that the pills might not be working? Thank you in advance!
