Is it true that if you take birth control within five days of your period your protected right away? I take sprintec.

In brief: Depends

That is true if you started your pill after your menstrual cycle.
If you started in the middle of your menstrual cycle then that may not be true. If you are uncertain use condoms for two weeks.
