Combined Pill Rigevidon

I take my pill consistently at the same time every single day. I'm never late and I've never missed one.

I've just run two packs together, taken my 7 day break and have been back on the pill for 2 days.

What I'm trying to work out is if I'm protected from the first pill after the break week or should I be using additional contraception?

It doesn't mention this in the pamphlets and I'm now worried I'm not fully protected.

You are fully protected all the time. My girlfriend takes the same pill as you, 2 years later and she's never been late with a period or gotten pregnant at all.

You're protected during the 7 days break/during your period and also you're protected as soon as you start taking the pills again. You can go as much as 12-18 hours late with Rigevideon too from the experiences of me and my partner, so it's quite a forgiving pill.

Hope this puts your mind at ease somewhat!
