Hi, I started Trivora on Wednesday, the first day of my period.
I had unprotected sex on Thursday.
My question is, how soon can I stop taking the pill and have no pregnancy risk?
It's making me crazy. I know it's only been a couple of days. I was on the ring and I was an emotional mess. I feel the same way right now.
I've decided hormonal bc is not the way for me.
But how soon can I get out? Please answer this soon.

You really are going to need to wait one full cycle, I'm afraid.

However, if you were not on another hormonal method before this, you already may have had risks by having sex without a backup only one day into your pill, so.

The pack said that if you start on the first day of your period, you do not need to use a back up method.

That can be the case for some women, but for others, it can take a bit for full effectiveness, primarily because if in that first month, any pills are taken late or skipped, ovulation may occur.

(And thus, the big reason why you'll need to finish this pack.)

To be most safe, we've always advised users use a backup method for the first full active cycle of BCPs.

Ok, thank you. It's too late for EC but I'll finish out the pack. :/ Damn hormones.
