Ok my girlfriend and i had intercourse today. She has been on the pill for a week now and just today she come off her period. I was wondering how effective the pill is if she uses it everyday and when is a girl the least likly to get pregnant. No day is a day where she cant but when is the least possible time?

Your question confused me a bit, but I'll try to answer. Despite what the insert in the package may say, the birth control pill really needs at least one full cycle (one whole package of pills) to become effect to any real degree, and three cycles to become as effective as it ever will be. However, the Pill does absolutely nothing against STI's, and, while quite effective, can still fail, we really, really recommend using condoms for every act of intercourse or oral sex (or dams, if the woman is receiving oral sex). Condoms, are cheap, easy to use, easy to find, and may even save your life.
