    Hi, so I started my pack of contraceptive pills one day early so I had 6 days without the pill. Then when I realized I didn't want to change the days when I take pills so I waited one day (without the pill) and then continued the pack as normal. So 1 day with the pill, 1 without and then the rest of the pack. After the day I didn't take a pill I started bleeding. When am I safe again to have sex without protection? I haven't seen anyone missing a pill and now I just don't know what to do.

    Did you not take the missed one within 12 hours? If so i think for most pills it's 7 days till you re safe again.

    The pack instructions will say, but yes, I think you're looking at seven days of using an additional form of contraception.
