I'm starting my 2nd pack of Microgynon 30 pills tomorrow. I'm just wondering when can i have unprotected sex again? Obviously my partner and i use pullout method, but I just want to know?
I've read that I am protected straight away, whilst my boyfriend has heard he has to wait a week.
Can someone help us out, please?
Thanks. Very Happy x

Are you on the second week of the pack (meaning you have taken the pill for seven days) or are you on the second pack (meaning you have taken the pill for thirty days?) Either way, you are safe. With Microgynon, it takes seven days for the pill to be effective unless you start the pill on the first day of your period, in which case, Microgynon is effective immediately.

I am on my second pack (meaning I have taken the pill for thirty days)
I took my first pill of my first pack on the first day of my period.
I have just come off my seven day break and I am ready to start my second pack, so will I be protected as soon as I retake my pill?

You are protected now. You have been protected since you first started taking it.

You were protected. Like I said in the first post: if you start taking the pill FOR THE FIRST TIME on the first day of your period you are protected immediately and you will be protected for as long as you take the pill as directed. If you start taking the pill FOR THE FIRST TIME on any other day, after seven days you are protected and you will be protected for as long as you take the pill as directed. You don't have to worry about the pill being effective each time you have your period.
