Doctor :   Hi
User :   I have a question about birth control pill. My Dr. told me to stop taking current pill after 10th day of active pills to start a new one on Sunday. That was today. Had intercourse yesterday......will I still be protected from yesterday's activities if I stop taking pills today?
User :   Been taking pills since February. This is third brand because of spotting.
Doctor :   ok
User :   so my question is, should I worry about stopping taking them today after having had intercourse yesterday?
Doctor :   you will be protected from pregnancy
