  • It's been years for me. Call your ob/gyn office they can provide you with a sure answer. When did you start taking them?

  • I am on it and was when I was nursing my oldest too. Both times the thing that came with it said it took 48 hours no matter when you started it. The mini pill doesn't take as long to kick in as regular pills because they are time specific. This is why you have to take them at the same time every day. Just like when are late taking a pill you have to use back up protection for the next 48 hours.
