Hello, I am on birth control, it is the 28 day pack. I was on it for a few months but stopped and recently started again. This was my first month back and i waited 7 days until i had unprotected sex. My question is what do doctors mean by seven days? On the pill packet 7 days is sun-mon-tue-wed-thur-fri-sat... in my situation, i had unprotected sex on saturday, the 7th day, 8 hours after i took my pill. Will i be protected? Or do doctors mean 7 days as in sunday to sunday.
