Hi, I had just finished one pack of my orthotrycyclin pill and I just ended my period. My question is, I just had an unprotected intercourse and Im possitive that my doctor told me that I should be safe after my next period ended which was the recent one. I just want to make sure that Im safe and that I would not be pregnant. Would plan b, be a good option just to be on the safe side or its not necessary? Help? Thank you.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Since you just started with your birth control a month back, taking Plan-B will be safer to prevent pregnancy. If you have taken the pills on time everyday without missing them, they will give you protection, but if you haven’t, then there might be chances of pregnancy.
Discuss with your gynecologist about the recent intercourse and if Plan-B is needed for you or not.
Take care.
