  • Have you ever been on BC? Usually you use condoms the first week to two weeks. Then after that you're golden to not use them. Although I have known people to use condoms as well as their BC just in case it failed. I always did when I thought I might be ovulating so i didn't have a failed BC method.

  • Did you read the insert that came with the pills? It is so important to be aware of side effects.
