Hi,thanks for query.Normally if the pills are taken on reulgar basis,you are safe from 8th day.Please do not miss the tablet ,at take them at the same time.Take as per the days marked on it.Continue till 21 days.In case of diarrhoea or vomiting the efficacy of tablets is decreased so be careful.
wishing you good health.

Hi!
The seven days are pill off days when you will experience withdrawal bleeding.It is deemed safe.

HI!
Thanks for choosing healthcaremagic.com.For the first time -first month you use birth pills kindly use barrier method like condom+spermicide also as the back up protection for the first month.from the second month there is no such problem.Please also remember that all the pills have to be taken everyday without fail else efficacy fails.
