  • The pill can be an effective morning after pill as well as a regular birth control. I wouldn't worry about it.

  • why would you stop u unless you want to get pregnant??? and if your not sure its effective yet because some doctors recommend waiting 2 weeks before ditching the condom you can just have him wear a condom

  • the doctor I go to and planned parenthood both told me that if you havent been using birth control then use condoms for a week after you start your pills. That's all I know. I just listened to them, and if he didn't like to use the condom for a week he could go with out for a week.

  • See, I thought they weren't supposed to be fully effective until about a month into taking them, which is why doctors recomend using a back up method for the first month or so. But don't stop taking them!

  • No they are not effective immediately, they take about a month to be 99%..... even if taken right you still can get pregnant with in the first month easily.... but i would continue to take them
