If i have just began taking the pill how long until i can have sex without other protection such as a condom? I have heard that some doctors prefer to use a condom and the pill for at least the first 3 months of starting the pill. Is this true?
When you begin to use oral contraceptives , your body will require at least 7 days to adjust before a pregnancy will be prevented. You will need to use an additional birth control method for at least 7 days. Some doctors recommend using an additional method of birth control for the first cycle (or 3 weeks) to ensure full protection. Follow the advice of your doctor or other health care professional.
