    Okay, so complete disregarding my thread from a few days ago, my GF has stumbled into a pack of BC pills.
    I have a few questions regarding the pills.

    I don't know if she's going to get any more after this pack, so...
    will they become active immediately?
    if not, how long before it's safe to have sex.
    how long before she's going to stop taking them should i stop having sex...
    i'm thinking a week? as sperm can stay alive for that long?

    you should wait a while to have sex once shes on the pill again. And sperm can live inside for 24 hours.

    :dunno: I'm not going to spout out info I'm not positive enough. I know B/C takes an ammount of time to fully work, which is why its so important to take the pills at the correct intervals, and start on the certain day, or what not, etc, etc. Just wait for another poster :o

    Another reality apparently
    Active Immeditately...no, it depends on the BC how long it will take...usually its atleast a week with newers things out there, and most advise up to a month...

    I would wait a week atleast before unprotected sex...

    If she hasnt stopped, then you dont need to stop...

    Why is she stopping though, its easy enough to go get more...? Just randomly taking BC for a month wont be healthy for her. BC is routine, and for more than just stopping her from getting prego.

    They say 1-2 cycles before the pill is effective.

    ortho-trycyclen when started onthe first day of her period is effective immedtately. the last week is a set of green sugar pills, and you are protected until those run out (ie up to 7 days after you end the medicated pills)

    i can only vouch for that. heres an idea, how about you ask her gyno?
