I had sex for the first time on tuesday the 2nd. I am on yaz but i was on my period till monday and my mom didn't get my new pack till monday and i was suppose to start taking it on saturday, i've been on the pill for now the 4th month. We also used a condom and it didn't break or anything but we forgot to pinch the tip, i asked some of my close friends though and they said that isn't a problem unless it broke. Then yesterday we hung out and were goin to have sex but then we decided not to after he tried to go in, we had a condom on this time also. Am i just worrying for nothing?

If the condom was on for all genital contact and did not rip or slip off, then you can rest assured it protected you against pregnancy/

For future reference with your pill, though, know the first pill in the pack is the worst one to miss. Either you'll want to start taking responsibility for getting your pills yourself from now on to be sure you have them in time, or will want to talk to your Mom to be sure she gets it's important you aren't taking pills days late like that.

If you want protection from BOTH condoms and your pill this month, you'll want to do two things: 1) make sure you make up those missed pills, and b) be sure to wait until you have been using this pack, including the made-up pills, for at least one week.
