  • Can I have Unprotected Sex while She's taking Combined Contraceptive Pills since 10 days?

    Hi everyone I'm new member here.
    We have recently married. I have had sex with my wife on 21 September 2020 but i didn't ejaculate inside her i used pull out method but still we were afraid of pregnancy so I gave her emergency Contraceptive pill(ECP), after 14 days or less she started bleeding quite thick and sticky and looked like vaginal tissues have been broken, It was probably because of morning pill. So on her 4th day of her cycle We visited the clinic on 8 October 2020(Thursday). We consulted with Dr regarding contraception and She recommended Yaz Tablets, It was a 4th day of her menstruation cycle and Dr said we can start pills right away, but we didn't started on the same day.
    ??????My wife started taking Yaz pills on 14 October 2020(Wednesday night).
    Technically We should have started pill on Monday as it is written on the pack that 1st day pill on Monday.But she started on Wednesday. She took the pill of day 1 on Wednesday instead of Monday .
    Kindly let me know Is it safe to take 1st pill on Wednesday and not on Monday.Are all the hormonal pills are same irrespective of the days or number written on it? Or the composition of every pink hormonal pill is different?
    ???
    Secondly I want to ask that Since she started taking pills, she is taking them regularly between 8:30 pm and 8:45pm everyday . It's been 10 days now she's on pills. Now is it safe to have unprotected sex?
    Is coitus interruptus necessary or not while she is taking pills. Thanks.

  • Hi Mr.King,

    I think to be as safe as you can be, it would be worth calling her doctor as far as the safety of unprotected sex goes. She may need to be on them a month before they're providing their fullest protection, but the best bet it is consult her physician to make sure. Different types and doses of pills may have different lengths of time in terms of providing protection.

    As far as the day of the week and the pills go, the exact day they're begun shouldn't be an issue I wouldn't think – for women who use pills that have different doses at different parts of the month (usually indicated by pill color), it can be easier to keep track if they're started on Monday (the start of each week) so that's the standard.

    But her body and the pills don't "know" that a day is a Monday, or a Tuesday, or whatever – that starting-day guidance is just a means of making it easier to keep track. Back when I was on birth control pills myself, one brand came in a bubble pack that was labeled with the days of the week; I didn't start them on a Monday, either.

    As long as she is taking the pill every day without missing a day, and at roughly the same time each day, the day of the week that they were actually started on shouldn't matter.

    I hope this helps!
