Taken birth control pills. Had unprotected sex. Safe from pregnancy?

Hello, I have completed a full cycle of the birth control pill Apri 28. I started my period on April 1st and ended Friday April the 5th. I took the placebo pills until sunday night when I took the first pill of my cycle. Last night (9th day of my cycle) I had unprotected sex and being two days into the birth control pills I was wondering if I was safe from pregnancy?

Thanks for your query.
For the first one or two months of birth control, a back up method like condoms is advisable, because the hormonal effect takes some time to kick in.
However, as you have consistently used the pill for a month earlier, chances of pregnancy are quite low, although you are never altogether safe.
Take care.
