I have never taken birth control before and my doctor told me to take sprintec after my period started.I needed it sooner so I took it a week before my period started. Is this okay or will I stop the process from working right?

Hello, Meagan! How are you?

According to NIH instructions, if you start them, when you are not on the first or second day of your period, it will take 7 days for them to become effective at preventing pregnancy, so a backup method of contraception should be used, until the 8th day.

If you start them the first or second day of your period, they are immediately effective at prevent pregnancy.

The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, spotting, and PMS-like symptoms.

Thus, if you had intercourse, before a full 7 days of taking them, there may be a risk of pregnancy.

Additionally, taking them off of your cycle will alter the week you experience your period.

Is there anything else I can help with?
