Hi, So i switch my birth control method from depo to pills on the same day as it's due Feb 26. During that time I had light bleeding. I also had unprotected sex on that same day and Friday. I was wondering am I still protected?
Switching depo shot to birth control pills - am I still protected?

You should be fine. If you don't want to compromise the effectiveness of your birth control you need to take your first pill up to 15 weeks after the last depot shot. If you wanted to take extra precautions you could use a back-up method of birth control such as condoms for the next seven days. You may have changes in your period after switching birth control methods. This is normal.
