If anyone has a more definate answer that would be most helpful. Let me first start by saying that a pregnancy would not be a bad thing, just not planned. I am 27, been on the combination 28-day pill for 10 years and for the FIRST time about two months ago missed too many pills and had to wait for my period to begin a new pillpack. Well, i did and only took Sunday nite-Friday nite before I forgot again! Some sites have said that if you begin within six days of your period then you are immediately protected from the first pill of the pack..........others say NO, it takes a full seven days to be protected - AFTER you have completed a whole pack successfully....? Conflicting info on different websites I pulled up. Obviously, I am unprotected now, but don't know if I need to take one a day until Sunday and then just begin a whole new pack from that day on or what? I get sick when I "double-up" pills. And, since my boyfriend & I have unprotected sex there is always that chance of pregnancy now b/c I understand I could be ovulating since I was off of the pill for a cycle....... so confusing :~) This would be about ovulation time now, but did taking those six pills stop that or throw it out-of-whack? And if conception were to take place is resuming the pill going to hinder implantation.......THANKS for any input!
