Birth Control
I am on the pill and am under the impression that if you take the pill everyday at the same time you are protected against unwanted pregnancy.But I just read that the week after you had your period you can fall pregnant and that the pill will not work. How is that possible?

That is not true. You are protected throughout the month.
