Hey guys. Today I take the last active pill in my pack, and tomorrow I start the sugar pills. Is it safe for me to have unprotected sex tonight? (And when I say safe, I mean as safe as possible. I know there still is risks.)
Need to know asap!! Thanks.

The hormones in the pill are designed to protect you during your entire cycle, including the placebo week, as long as you take the pills as prescribed at the same time each day.
But since the pill does not protect against STIs, if you and your partner are not up to date on your full STI screenings, it would be a good idea to use a condom for STI protection until you get that done.
