  • Oh definitely still use other protection for at least 2 months. It takes a while for the hormones in the pill to take effect. I really don't think I ever started a pill the day I was "supposed" to. In the long run, your cycle will adjust to the pill, but protect yourself in the meantime. You"ll be okay starting a little late... :-)

  • use protection for atleast a month if not two it does take a while for it to be really effective. and dont worry about starting it a few days late your body will adjust to the pill. Becareful what medication you take becuz some antibiotics can make your birthcontrole less effective and becareful to not miss a pill becuz if you do there is a chance you can get pregnant.

  • I am giving advice to you from someone who hasen't had to worry about that for a long time. I have never heard of this type, but always,always follow your Dr.s advise on something like this. When I take them they would tell you to start them on the sunday after you last day of your period, but like I said do what your Dr. says.
