Unprotected sex on last day of periods. Taking cerazette medication. Will birth control be effective?

I was prescribed cerazette on the 2nd day of my period, I was told to take it and contraception would take effect immediately. I did I then carried on taking the pill at the same time everyday for 2 whole days before having unprotected sex ( I was still taking the pill at this point). I had unprotected sex on the last day of my period, am I covered? As I waited two days on the pill and still are taking the pill now as instructed?

Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Yes you would be protected from pregnancy if you have taken the tablets regularly at a fixed time without any delay.

Starting cerazette within first 5 days of menstrual period offers protection immediately.

Delay or missing any cerazette tablet delays contraceptive efficacy. So in future if you do the same, you have to use a additional contraception like barriers (condoms) for the next 2 days.

take care.
