  • Birth control pills, or oral contraceptives, contain hormones that suppress ovulation. During ovulation an egg is released from the ovaries, without ovulation there is no egg to be fertilized and pregnancy cannot occur.

  • Miss know it all, I am pretty sure she knows this.. She was asking if it had been long enough since starting the birth control pill.

  • they say you should wait 2 months before having unprotected sex because it could take that long to not ovulate, but that is just to be more safe, it could be that it worked right away for you.

  • i have never heard of waiting 2 months. The most I have ever heard or been told personally is a full cycle (You know.. 1 month..)
