    Default Is pregnancy likely first week of taking Pill?

    I started taking the pill right after my period ended. It said on the packet I could have unprotected sex after 7 days. So I had unprotected sex after a couple of hours having the 7th pill. I have been taking it irregularly ( mean never accurately on time... More like a few hours out every time) and I missed the 8th pill. So we had sex the 14th day post period.

    Are my chances of pregnancy high? As its only my first week of taking the pill? Or do you think the Pill has already kicked in and doing its job?

    My doctor always says the pill takes at least a MONTH to take effect. And that is when it is taken without missing one day. I personally wouldn't have unprotected s*x until at least 3 months of continuous use. The pill is also not 100% safe as a contraceptive. If u are worried u should speak to your doctor.
