Hi there, i have a question re Cerezette contraceptive pill
Patient :Hi there, i have a question re Cerezette contraceptive pill. Have been taking it for 6 months and took short break last week (decided then to stick with it)
Question is when am I protected!
Last pill: Sunday 17th May 9am.
Very heavy bleed Sun 17th to Fri 22nd May
(Have regular bleeds which is why i considered stopping it)
Took pill 8pm Fri 22nd May (again sat 23rd 9am)
Took pill on day 6 of bleed (i think!)
Am i protected after 7 days? Ive read 2 days, ive read 7 days and chemist told me not till end of pack!!
Can you start this pill mid cycle and be protected after 7 days?
Very confusing and unclear information!
