Birth Control/Is it possible!


Hello, i have been taking gynera for a while now and the first time i did i started the day after my period was over and i recently discovered that i was suppose to take it at the start of my period, recently i had unprotected sex and i just wanted to know because of me doing it the wrong way am i still safe? How do i go about takin the pill properly?

If you start the pill near the start of a period, you're protected immediately.  If you start more than 4 days after the start of a period, you're protected after you've been on the pill for 7 days.  Once you've been on the pill for 7 days, you're protected every day, including the days on the placebo pills, as long as you don't miss any pills.
