Sex after only 6 days on Pill - Chances of pregnancy?
I had just started on the contraceptive pill Nordette. However, on the sixth day (the day after my period ended) I had unprotected sex. What are the chances of pregnancy? How long does it pill take for the pill to take effect?

You should take 7 active pills before it is effective, so there is a small chance of pregnancy.
