I started the birth control pill for the first time
Patient :I started the birth control pill for the first time on a sunday a week after my period ended, since i didnt start the sunday of my period, which instantaneously protects you from pregnancy, my dr told me to wait a week before having unprotected sex, and i did. i waited 2 weeks. i had unprotected sex yesterday, should i be worried? i take my bc roughly at the same time each day from between 8:30 am to 9:30 am. i read on some websites that birth control becomes effective after 7 days while others say i need to use another backup method for my first month on the pill. should i worry And take plan b? he said he didn't think he came inside of me
