I just started the pill and want to make sure there are no ‘mistakes’. does anyone know how long it takes to kick in?
I was told not to have unprotected sex for 7 days after taking the first pill
I’d go with whatever guidelines your doctor gave you
I asked my doctor the same question he said 1 month to be sure
My doc said an entire pack…
I was told you need to use condoms for the first week then you are fine. Never heard this one month talk. Just use condoms for now.
Use backup for 1 month. I work in gyn office and this is what the NPs tell patients.
Yeah I’ve always heard a full cycle
I got told two weeks
My doctor said 30 days to be safe.
My OB told me 7 days and then the pharmacy suggested 30 days to get my hormones back in check
I was told to use condoms for a whole month while on the pill.
My dr. Said it dont work the 1st month
Anywhere from 2 weeks to a month
It’s usually advised to use an additional form of protection for 7 days from the day you start taking the pill. The leaflet included in the pill box will tell you so.
Generally, 30 days for full effectiveness
I have 2 beautiful twin boys that were conceived 2 weeks after starting birth control. I would definitely wait a month.
My doc suggested a month with any birth control
1 month usually 30 days your hormones have to adjust and thats saying you take it as its supposed to be taken.
Ask the freaking doctor duh.
