So I am a bit confused because I was reading my yaz booklet, and it said if you have sex a week before you miss a pill you can get pregnant. So what if you have sex a day before you go on your inactive pills?
It seems the more I learn about the pill the less reliable it becomes :/

Every pill is different. No matter how much you read up on it, new information is entering the world every day and it's hard to know what's right and what's wrong.
Typically, the pill takes anywhere between 2-3 months to become active within your system, which is why it's recommended that you use another form of contraception during those 2-3 months to ensure you won't have an unwanted pregnancy. ANYTIME you have sex, there is a chance of pregnancy. Even if you're protected, nothing is 100 percent.
If you missed a pill, and had sex during that period of time, the chances rise slightly since you deprived yourself of the hormones you're body is used too. If you take the pill regularly, every day at the same time (as it should be administered) and had sex the day before going on the placebo pill (inactive), you'll still be protected since you were administering the pill as required.
