Hi, my girlfriends doctor told her to finish 2 packs


Q: Hi, my girlfriends doctor told her to finish 2 packs of birth control before it would be safe for her to have sex, so I was wondering if it would still help reduce the chance of pregnancy if we didn't it after she only finished one pack. I used a condom and it's been a month since she's started birth control. Also, it's been a week and she's starting to feel sick, could it be the stress of everything? Or could it be a side effect of losing her virginity?
