I started the pill 5 weeks postpartum hadnt got my period and had sex exactally 7 days after being on the pill, then my doctor told me it takes a month for the pill to be effective since i didnt wait until i got my period to start the pill, could i be pregnant and does the pill really take that long to work?

  • ya careful because my midwife said its easier to get prego 3 months after giving birth because your hormones have to get back to normal.. and yes sometimes it can take more then 30days for the pill to become active in you, just depends on you.. and it may take your period a few weeks to come back to normal..i didnt get mine till almost 9 wks post after both my kids.
    good luck
