  • when i started on the pill my doc said not to have unprotected sex for about 2 months to give the pill a chance to work real good.

  • if you took the first 3 weeks and are now in your off week, you should be protected. If you want to double check, you can try talking to you doctor, but I'd recommend a pharmacist. Doctors go to school to diagnose and treat the sick. They have a few classes regarding medications, but pharmacists go to school for 3 years to learn about the medications they work with every day.
