My question is that tomorrow I start my 8th pack of bc pills and I will be seeing my bf tomorrow in case we don't use a condom will I still be protected?

Also this month and last month I had a period for two days I bled a lot on those two days just want to know if it's normal to have a 2 day period.

Thank you

I drink Lipton tea everyday at night does that interfere with lutera bc? I las drank chai tea from starbucks with my bf does either of them interfere with the bc?

Oh I see yeah i been on bc since August 2014 and never missed a pill. I got worried because it's the first day of a new pack and I had sex I got worried I wouldn't be fully protected

What confuses me is that I ended plceboo pills yesterday and today I just started my 8th pack and they say to be careful the first seven days and I didn't waited 7days. Also he used a condom and took and then took it off. When he felt that he was coming he dripped sperm put side my leg and on they blanket. That's why I'm worried never missed a pill in the previous pack I always take it at 8am

The 7 day wait only applies to the time you are beginning birth control for the first time.  You have been on birth control for 8 weeks so this rule no longer applies.

Faith question I had sex with my bf 2hours ago like I mentioned it before I never mss a pill from the previous pack and today I just started my first active pill of the 8th pack of pills he did used a condom but it broke. Should I take an EC pill or am I safe?

No, definitely do not take an EC.  This will disrupt your cycle because both pills contain hormones.  Oral contraceptive pills are enough to prevent pregnancy as long as you take them consistently every day.

Thank you faith,

So if I have sex without a condom? Because i just took the first pill of the 8th pack or should I wait 7 days that's what confuses me.

Hello and thank you for sharing your question.

If you have been taking the pills consistently without stopping then starting a new pack will not change the effectiveness of the pill.

Having a 2 day period is not dangerous. Since you bleed very heavily, your body eliminates the blood fast.
