Taking Femedone contraceptive, finished the course and had periods. Am I still protected?

Hi, I have recently started the pill (femedone) which i use as a contraceptive . I finished my last pill on Monday 11th Feb and began the 7 day break on Tuesday 12th in which I should have begun the next pack on Tuesday 19th after my 7 day break. However, I took my pill a day early (Monday 18th). Is this ok? Am I still protected? Many thanks, Emily.

Thanks for writing to us.
Taking the first pill of the next pack a day earlier is not worrisome. This does not decrease the efficacy of protection. You are still protected against pregnancy. Please do not worry and continue with the rest of the pills.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
