How long until I can have unprotected intercourse after starting Monofeme (contraceptive pill)?

Patient : I started taking monofeme a week after my period ended and have gone through 11 pills. Is it safe to have unprotected sex? On the instructions it said that I can have unprotected sex after 7 days though it also said to start the pill on your first day of the period, which I didn't do. Also, because I started taking the pill late, do I still take the 7 red pills straight after i've finished the white ones? Thanks
