Question
Okay ..i had a miscarriage on 14th august and i was bleeding all the way up until 25th which is the day i started taking my birth control (rigevidon).. my dr told me i should be protected straight away..i stopped bleeding by the next day and had unprotected sex that night ... am i definately protected against pregnancy?

Answer
You are probably protected, but probably not definitely protected.
Most women will ovulate 2-4 weeks after a miscarriage.  You had sex 11 days after the miscarriage, and ovulation is unlikely.  However, the pill hasn't had a chance to protect you yet, and if you happened to ovulate a little early, pregnancy could be possible.  Not likely, but not impossible.
