    I just started ridgevidon for the first time on Monday and have been taking it for 5 days now , however if I did not start on the first day of my period and in fact I started it 2 days after my period , am I covered or would I have to use condoms for the first seven days of taking the pill because I did not start ridgevidon on my period ?
    I'm just worried that if I was to have sex anytime soon I could have a chance of being pregnant and reading different sources have confused me

    Instruction pack time:

    "If you start on day 2-5 of your period, you should use another method of contraception as well, such as the condom, for the first seven pill-taking days, but this is only for the first pack."

    So you've covered from Monday.
