I have been on Lo Loestriñ Fe for two weeks now. I just had sex with my boyfriend and he came inside me. I take the pill everyday at the exact same time; haven't missed a pill and hasn't been late. And I took the first pill on the first day of my period. I have a couple questions: first, am I going to get pregnant? How long does it take for the pills to become effective? I want a clear yes or no, please. And second, could I get pregnant during the brown and white pills? And if I don't take the brown pills, is that going to effect my cycle? Please answer everything as possible.
It takes 7 consecutive days before the pill is effective and after that you have less then a 1% chance of pregnancy. The brown or white pills are the placebo pills taking them just helps you remember to take your pill everyday but they have no effect on your cycle or possibility of pregnancy. After the first 7 days you are protected all of the time even during the placebo pills. I hope this helps.
I'm sorry that you feel you need to give directions for the answer. You are protected all the time, as of the 7th pill, as long as you keep taking your pills correctly. You have less than a 1% chance of pregnancy. The brown pills are just iron. You don't need to take them you can just take those days off from pills, they are there so you just keep taking pills all the time.
