I am using pill but since I don't have supply, I'm wondering if I can have safe sex til I get it after 5 days. My menstruation just finished. It is alright to have sex wihout contraception within 5 days?

Hi Geali, I recommend you use

Hi Geali,

I recommend you use another form of birth control. When you stop taking the pill your hormone levels return to "normal" very quickly many women begin menstruation within a few days of stopping the pill regardless if they just finished menstruating or not.
