Switching Pills

So, I'm switching from a minipill to Loestrin, a monophasic pill. I'm not planning to start Loestrin when my period starts, so I'll have a week of needing backup protection. But since sperm can live inside the body for at least several days, do I need to be concerned about using condoms a few days prior to starting Loestrin, as the minipill loses effectiveness pretty much immediately after you stop taking it? It seems like sperm could be alive for the few days before Loestrin kicks in even if I'm using condoms.
