Patient :I have been taking Ocella, a birth control medication, for several years now. I began it with the Sunday start, so the last hormone pill for the month is taken on a Saturday. I would get my period on the following Friday (5 days later) therefore having my period on the weekends, lasting 3 days.
I recently changed the start of the pill from Sunday to Friday so I would no longer have my period on weekends. When would it be safe to have sex again?
If you are contemplating change over of cycle for pills then in any case you should start if from day 1 of your cycle . If you happen to start later then you have to follow barrier contraception for 2 weeks along with the pill to establish its effect and prevent ovulation which is the primary mechanism of action for preventing pregnancy.
i HOPE I HAVE ANSWERED YORU QUERY IN DETAIL,
WISHING YOU GOOD HEALTH,
