No, to first start oral contraceptives, you have to start them on the first day of your menstrual cycle.

This helps allow your body to adjust to the hormones in the medication and starts the protection to prevent pregnancy, because you are not protected immediately, it takes time for the protection to take effect. You have to wait at least a week, before having unprotected sex and preferably, a month.

Verwon Says:
Maria, you can use them that way, but you will have to use other protection against pregnancy for at least a week, since you are not menstruating, they will take a little while to kick in.

Xhelle, did you have unprotected sex during the first week?

If you start the pills, when you aren't on your menstrual cycle, then they will take at least a week to become effective and you have to use some other type of protection in the meantime.

The only way to find out if you're pregnant, if you didn't use extra protection, is to take a test or see a doctor and find out.

However, if you did, it is normal for the pills to affect your menstrual cycle, especially when you first start taking them, you may skip altogether or have a cycle that just isn't normal and this can last for about 3 months.

im using injectable before but i stop b/c of gaining weight, now i plan to use oral contraceptive..what is the best oral contraceptive that i used

Verwon Says:
Rowena, since I don't know where you are located, I have no way of knowing what brands or types are available for you. Can you post back with this information, so I can check for you?

There is also really no best one to use, because what works well for someone else may not work for you and may cause many side effects.

You should also know that weight gain can also occur with oral contraceptives.

i took the pill april 9, the moments later we had unprotected sex... is there any chances that i might get pergnant?

Verwon Says:
Michelle, was that your first pill and you were just starting them?

If so, then yes, it is possible that you could be pregnant, because they are not immediately effective.

If you start taking them the day you start your menstrual cycle, which actually starts a few days after your most fertile ovulation cycle or ends a few days before it starts, you will be protected from pregnancy, because the pills will prevent that next possible ovulation cycle from occurring.

However, if you start them at any other time, you have to take them for at least a week to be protected from pregnancy.


Is there anything else I can help with?

i am in a 2nd pack of my trust pill it is possible to get pregnant if i have sex in a first week of my 2nd pack of pills? and it is ok to take the pills like 8:15 or 8:20 every day?

Verwon Says:
cyrhian, you should still be protected from pregnancy during the first week of each new pack, as long as you have been taking them as you should.

Continuously taking them means continuous protection.

And yes, taking them at that time, or whatever time is convenient for you is fine, as long as taken them around the same time each day.

im using trust for 3 months, on my 3rd pack of pills i took only 4 tablets my boyfriend throw the rest of the pills by mistake., now its my 3rd day without the pills suddenly i had my period..i just had my regular period 9 days ago, is it normal? or should i be worried?

Verwon Says:
Donna, if you have suddenly stopped taking them, for whatever reason, then yes, it is normal to get breakthrough bleeding, even if you just had your period recently.

The pills in the pack that you take the week of your period are actually inactive pills and not having the hormones in them is how they trigger your body to start your period, so you basically do the same thing if you just stop taking them.

Have you consulted with your doctor about getting them replaced?

Verwon Says:
She, if you took them daily, as you are supposed to, then you are still protected during your period week, even if your period is lighter or shorter than it used to be.

Since these are hormonal based contraceptive tablets, it is normal for the to affect your menstrual cycle, so it may be different than what you were used to.

Verwon Says:
Joyce, yes, it is completely normal to have changes to your cycle, when you take hormonal contraceptives. There may be other times where your period is heavier than normal, or where you skip entirely. It really just all depends on your body and how the hormones affect it.


However, if you are very concerned, it never hurts to consult your doctor to be on the safe side.
