i've been on birth control for two months now and I just got off my period from month two. In the directions, it says to wait a week to have unprotected sex when starting the pills. Does this mean wait a week after each start of the pills or just first starting them? Am I protected even if it's the second day of the third month?
No, you just need to use back up or abstain from sex the first week when you start. If you have been on the Pill for two months and havent missed any Pills then you are protected from pregnancy every day of the month now. If you miss Pills you should use back up for 7 days after a missed Pill and if you are put on antibiotics, you should use back up during the time you are on the antibiotics and for at least 7-14 days after you finish them. You should be good to go otherwise!
