According to my doctor and based on the contraceptive pill I was on, I could start having unprotected sex and avoid pregnancy from the day I started taking the pill.

well on my leaflet it said 7 days but being stupid i didnt think 3 days would make much of a difference... i wasnt ovulating as it was literally like 3/4 days after i finished my period xx

Im the same as blaire, thepill I used to take I was protected from day 1 of taking it. I would be pretty confident that you'll be covered if I were you. I'd be very surprised otherwise.

My Dr told me taking it from day 1 of cycle (e.g first day of period) would instantly protect you. Hope it helps x

You should be fine, my husband is a physician and he said they do recommend waiting the 7 days until having unprotected sex (unless you start your 1st pill on the day of your period), although nothing is impossible, I conceived while on the pill after having taken it 100% correctly for years...I know am the RARE exception so you likely have nothing to worry about
