NEED HELP 2DAY IF POSSIBLE
Hi,

I am on Triphasil and started my period on the Wednesday. I had the 5 placebo pills and from there on I had 4 normal pills. Do you think I'm protected? I had unprotected sex last night. I'm just scared I might fall pregnant.

Thanks for your help.

No, you have to take 7 active pills before you are protected.
