A 23-year-old female asked:
I moved over from melodene to minerva 35 after my inactive pills. i started with minerva yesterday since this would have normally been my first day of active pill taking. ive had unprotected sex today. should i now take the morning after pill?

Not necessary: Melodene and Minerva 35 are both combination pills containing 21 days of hormone and 7 days of no hormone. changing from one to the other without any missing days ensures protection against pregnancy. The morning after pill is not needed. It is important to note that no contraceptive pill protects against STD's and therefore condoms should be used to prevent these conditions with every sexual act.
