I started taking Ortho Tri Cyclen lo July 22nd, this is my very first time on birth control, so I've been on the pill for a little over 2 weeks. I wanted to know if I have sex while I'm on the placebo/sugar pills before my period starts will I be safe from pregnancy? I know the pill is supposed to inhibit ovulation, but because I've only been on the pill for not even a whole month I'm worried about the risk factor. If I were to have sex during the placebo pill week before my period, is it likely that I could get pregnant?
You are protected all the time as long as you take your pills right. You are protected after the first 7 days
