I took the 2nd pill of this pack late... after 1am when I'm supposed to take it at 8:30 pm... so, out of the window.

Then, I took one of the last active pills at 10pm.. so, still in the window.

I'm on my placebo week and currently have my withdrawal bleeding.

My boyfriend and I have not had sex for a couple weeks now.. we have been waiting to make sure I got my withdrawal bleeding.

My question is though... if my withdrawal bleeding finishes say, tomorrow, is it okay to have unprotected sex on say, Friday?

Like basically.. is it okay to have unprotected sex again before starting the new pack of pills on Sunday, since I've had my withdrawal bleeding?

Thank you.

Yep, since you got your withdrawl bleed this month, it's safe to assume your pill is fully effective and it's alright to rely on it for pregnancy protection.

And for future reference, one late pill is usually not enough to compromise the effectiveness of your pills. More than one late/missed pill, however, does increase your risk, but just one is nothing to worry about.
