  • If you don't want to get pregnant, start your birth control. If you are starting your pill on the right day, it means you started your period in the last six days and so you are not fertile yet.

  • If you plan on messing around again anyways then take it ... the chance of you being pregnant is slim... if you start it and you are pregnant it shouldn't hurt it that much.. i was on birth control weeks into my pregnancy and i have a healthy five month old daughter... but you will know if your pregnant when your taking them.. you'll feel so sick and get a lot of cramping with no blood.. and if thats the case you need to stop them right away and get a blood test... because of the bc my pee pregnancy test wasn't positive until 7 weeks
