Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.
No, you are not 100% protected if you don't take the packet as prescribed
I would start over again and take them as prescribed

I had unprotected sex today although taking it regularly after but from the same packet is it likely I could be pregnant ? This has worried me

why did you rate negative Adreanna?

MOST likely you will be fine. The pill does still have some effect.
However, the only way to be sure is by taking them properly in order
that is why the pack is built that way

I just found the first answer too vague after paying .. I took the dark red tablet this morning so I should have my period fairly soon .i never didn't go a day without taking a pill just skippied the first seven but had no srx for two weeks after . I thought if you take a 9 day precaution you would be ok
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
No that is not correct
The pills rely on a specific order to work
