    Being on the pill
    An_252104 posted:
    I'm a nurse I should know this. But I'm a worrier. I took my last active pill this am for my pack. Then I will start my iron pills, I take Generess FE. I had unprotected sex and wonder if my risk of pregnancy is increased because of this.
    fcl responded:
    Firstly, you did not have unprotected sex because you're on the pill. Secondly, the pill is designed to give you exactly the same contraceptive cover the whole month through.
