How long before I'm protected?

Hah. : ) So I've been on the pill for about a week.

Just wanted to know what the standard amount of time is before I am able to have condomless sex?

I've searched around... and keep coming up with different answers!

Re: How long before I'm protected?

Each bc is going to be a little different. So you will get the best answer by reading the pamphlet that came with your bc.

Typically though you are protected immediately if you start on the first day of your period and after 7 days if you do a Sunday start. But like I said, do NOT just take my word that this is true for your bd. Read the pamphlet.
