My boyfriend and I don't enjoy using condoms very much and the instructions on the packet says I will be protected after 7 days but this seems like too little an amount of time. I want to be completely protected without a condom. This is my first time taking birth control and I've been taking it for two days and another question I have is I want to change the time I continue to take it everyday from morning to afternoon, as it works better with my schedule, will this affect the effectiveness since I barely started taking it?? the difference in the time will be a change of about 6 hours.
No it's 7 days. I'm so glad you read the insert. You are safe after you've taken 7 pills..
