unprotected sex after 1 cycle of birth control pills

Hi, this is the first time that I started using birth control pills (yaz). After finishing the first cycle (including the placebo pills), I had sex with my boyfriend the next morning (first active pill of 2nd cycle). Will I be protected from getting pregnant since I had finished the whole first cycle? I take the pill every night before bed, but my sexual intercourse was in the morning of the same day. Does this affect the level of protection?
