I have never been on the pill before but i’m not on my period yet, can i start taking them now and wait 7 days to have unprotected sex or do i need to wait for the first day of my period

Hello @oliviamason

Yes, as long as you are reasonably sure that you are not pregnant you can start at anytime in your cycle and use condoms for the first 7 days.

Many thanks
