My girlfriend started her second cycle of birth control

Patient : My girlfriend started her second cycle of birth control last Sunday, and we had sex this Sunday. She takes her pill at nights, so she has used 6 pills. Are we protected from pregnancy?
Doctor :   Hello, Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com I understand your concern. Yes, since she started her b irth control and had taken 6 pills already, she can't get pregnant. Mostly this hormone tablets are taken for 3 weeks and stopped for a week, for the normal period to commence. If she is regular there are no risks of pregnancy. Hope this was helpful, Regards
