I started birth control 8 days ago, I've been through 7 pills so far. I started mid-cycle because my periods are irregular and my cycles are very long so I didn't know when I would get my next one, therefor I'm not sure if I had already ovulated before I started taking them. I waited to have sex for those 7 days ( as reccommended) but my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex and he came inside of me. I'm only slightly worried but my main concern is that since I quick started the birth control I might not have been fully protected. My question is that even if you quick start the pill, are you still protected after 7 days? Everybody seems to say different things. Thanks!
