Patient :I have been on sprintec birth control for over 2 years. I take it at the same time every day and I never miss a pill. I know that you have to wait at least a week the first month of taking the pill to be protected by it, but do you have to wait that same amount of time every month? Or is it only the first month? Basically can I have sex on the first day or so of a new pack if I've been taking the pill for as long as I have?
