... start on the second or third pill. I take the pills at about the same time every day. I do have unprotected sex with my boyfriend, and I have for 3 years. He always pulls out though. I have started my placebo pills, and I am on the fourth way today, and I still haven't started. I've been getting all the symptoms like cramps, but I haven't started at all. Should I be worried? I'm freaking out. Thanks for any help
