Hey there,

I finish taking my pills on the last Saturday of the month, then receive my period on Tuesday. My period is usually over by Friday. Me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex on the last day of my period, and he came inside me. I already started my pills again (on Sunday) but we had intercourse on Friday. Just wondering if I am at a high risk of getting pregnant??

Thank you

You are just as protected during the placebo week or pill-free week as you are during the rest of your cycle on the pill, as long as you've been taking them correctly and continue to do so. Check it out: How the pill works.
