      Here’s my question – I started to take birth control pills just a couple weeks ago. A few days after I started to take the pills I started to have unprotected sex, thinking that nothing would happen. The papers that came with the pills said that if you got your period on a Sunday, and started to take the pills on the Sunday, then you could have unprotected sex right away and you wouldn’t get pregnant. Does anyone think this is true or should I have waited longer before having unprotected sex? What does everyone else think?


        I see that you posted quite a while ago but I know that this advice will help someone else if you don’t get a chance to read it…There are no pills or birth control methods that are 100% effective 100% of the time, ANY time you engage in sexual activity you can get pregnant, our bodies and hormones are all so different that the smallest changes in our diet and who we are around (other women) can cause our cycles to change making us unable to predict correct ovulation….that is why it so risky to be having sex when you are not in a solid committed relationship (preferably marriage) and prepared to have children, I mean no one is ever “ready” for children but one can be prepared as possible in terms of finances and lifestyle…I just always recommend playing it Truly Safe by not having sex until you are married, it may sound old fashioned or boring but in reality if your bf is not willing to wait for you then is he worth being with? I mean he is not the one who will end up pregnant, it will be you who has to make changes in your life and carry the baby in your own body…so anyways, I am not recommending that you do anything I have not done myself, the difference is that I had two kids from two dads before I decided to stop having sex…I learned the hard way, you still have time to re-think having a sexual relationship…Love Meg
