Started new pack late! :(

I had sex four days before I started my new pack which I started late by three days! I thought it would be ok and that I would just have to use a condom for the next seven days but I read something on the net that said because I started the pill three days late it mean I wouldn;t be protected for the next month! I am confused and need help quick!
Please can someone tell me more about it in more detail and what I should do!

It's different with different pills. Check out the particulars for your prescription.

Re: Started new pack late! :(

I have read all of the leaflet that came in the box and I even looked on the companys website but it is still to vague for me to be sure. I hate that I have messed it up, I am always so carefull. Is there any numbers anyone recomends that I could ring and ask someone in more detail?
