You are safe after 7 active Pills. The Pill is more than 99% safe if used correctly. There are a number of medications, such as antibiotics, which can interfere with the Pill. It is best to check each time you are prescribed a medication. Vomiting and diarrhoea can also interfere with the absorption of the Pill.
