Thank you for visiting

When starting to use an oral contraceptive, you are not safe before you had your fist menstrual cycle on the pill. I therefore recommend that you take the morning after pill (needs to be taken withing approximately 72 hours after intercourse).

You are def unsafe. You are at your most fertile and I think you need 14 days on the pill to be safe. Just ask the pharmacist they will be able to help you.
