Hi Confused,

I assume you mean the "mini pill"? If so you are protected after taking the pill for 7 days. So, you should be fine. Of course, using another form of birth control when you first start a new pill is always a good idea. Especially sense the mini pill is on average only 90% effective in some case.

Best of Luck,

Thanks TammyM, It's just my

Thanks TammyM, It's just my boy friend is getting obsessed about not using a condom ... is there sperm in pre cum, so he can pull out maybe? If anything escapes the mini pill will still save me wont it !!??

Hi Confused, Yes, there is

Hi Confused,

Yes, there is sperm in pre cum. As long as he pulls out in time you should be fine. I know it says you are safe after 7 days but if you are really worried about getting pregnant I would use the condoms until you have been on the pill for the full month. That way you know you are safe!

Hi Confused,

Yes, it can be annoying. Yes, heavier bleeding after sex is also normal as the penis can cause an irritation from the movement. It is somewhat similar to having your period be a day late then having sex and getting your period the next morning. It is a strange phenomenon.
