Hi,

Welcome again,

Oral contraceptives are to be started from first day of period and should be taken at same time regularly.

If you have taken pills regularly, daily at the same time, chances of pregnancy due to sex you had on 29th are negligible.

Thanks for posting your query.

Hope you found my response to your query informative and helpful.

If you have further concerns in this regard, I would be happy to discuss those with you as well.
