Hey darlin's

well I got treatment for thrush, it really was'nt so bad. But I begged the doctor to put me on the combined pill instead of the minipill. Well on sunday i came off the minipill and on monday i went on the combined pill. How long till i am fully protected?? or am i still protected even tho i changed the pill .. im a tad confused?

all my love

one cycle. that's a good rule of thumb to follow. even still, it's always good to back up with a condom.

Yep, one cycle equals one full pack of pills.
