I have been prescribed combination birth control pills due to my cystic patterns. My boyfriend and I have decided to stop using condoms now. It's a 21 day pack and I wanted to know if I'll be safe from pregnancy if I have intercourse one day after I start the pack, which would be the third or fourth day of my period.
For example, if I start my pill pack today and have sex tomorrow, will I be safe from pregnancy? Or is there a time frame for the pills to work?

You'll only be protected straight away if you take it on the first day of your period, which you aren't.

You need to take the pill for 7 days correctly before you'll be protected. So take 7 pills and then on the 8th day you'll be protected. Use condoms until then.
