Hi, I’m a little confused lol!

I started the mini pill 2 days after my period finished and I have been taking it perfectly etc not missing a tablet and taking it on time. I have finished my first pack/month and I am now on my second pack/month of the tablets but I just want to know when am I protected with this pill as I have been taking it for just over a month now

With the POP you should be protected within 48 hours. Ideally you should have started within the first five days of your period starting. You didn't say how many days your period was, and when was the first time you had sex after starting it.

My periods are usually 7 days long and I had finished that period and started the pill two days after that period. I had sex like a week after starting it but we used condoms too
