Many pill packs are arranged to start on this day. You take your first pill on the first Sunday after your menstruation starts. Use a second birth control method for 7 days if you have sex. Take 1 pill every day for 21 days (3 weeks) in a row. Then don’t take any pills for seven days (week 4).

You’ll get your period during the fourth week while you aren’t taking any pills. It’s important to take. You should have your period while taking these pills. When taking the 21-day form, you will simply not take pills during the last week of your cycle, during which you will have your period. You’ve probably heard that birth control pills can allow women to forgo their periods by taking the active pills continuously (without taking the placebo pills in a 28-day pack.

You have less than a 1% chance of getting pregnant if you use them exactly as directed. That means taking your pill every day. Their effects are easy to reverse, too. You’ll be protected from pregnancy after 48 hours (2 days).

So use another method of birth control (like condoms) if you have penis-in-vagina sex during the first 48 hours. Your nurse or doctor can help you. Cervical cap. The cervical cap is 92 to 96 percent effective with perfect use.

With typical use, it’s 71 to 88 percent effective. Like a diaphragm, a cervical cap covers the cervix to prevent. Combination birth control pills work mainly by suppressing ovulation. In other words, they prevent the release of an egg.

With no egg, fertilization and, subsequently, pregnancy cannot occur. If you take combined hormonal birth control pills that contain both an estrogen and progestin, and have no other options, higher doses of regular birth control pills can be used as an emergency contraceptive. Combination birth control pills prevent your ovaries from releasing an egg. They also slow an egg’s progress through the fallopian tubes, thicken cervical mucus and thin the lining of the uterus. Keep spermicidial foam and condoms in case you forget to take the pill.

Carry your pills with you always. Take your pill at the same time daily. Get your refills soon after you start the last prescription.


List of related literature:

Take it regularly; if you miss even one pill, or if you have diarrhoea or vomiting (which can interfere with absorption of the Pill by your body), use back­up protection (such as a condom and spermicide) until your next period.

I recently had a pregnancy that ended in a miscarriage and I have not had a cycle yet. does that mean that my periods will change I kind of like having three day periods I’ve had them every since I’ve had my first child back in 2014. I am kind of scared about how my periods will change will the pill make them longer? also I have been having troubles with my appetite like I just eat all the time and I’m always hungry will that go away? I crave anything from chocolate to foods that I would normally not eat

  • I once. Been drug for years caused irregular menstrual, mentrusl cramp, weight gain, etc can I ask any side effect? If yes can I charge the person to court

  • How can she say it lowers your risk for different cancers… it’s a bunch of chemical hormones you’re putting inside your body. It might be useful for some women but definitely not something that can be marketed as “good” for our bodies. (But the practical information for starting the pill was useful.) Please do some research on the side effects before you start.

  • my girlfriend started taking the pills on the second day of menstruation. we had sex exactly 7 days later. wanted to know if there could be pregnancy

  • Noramin has been out of stock for months. I’m in perimenopause so it’s hard to choose when to start. Maybe I’ll just trust what clue is predicting. The femme-tab ED 20/100 looks way different from noramin. I’m very confused ��
    I need to be on something to help my hormones coz of the genetic condition I have.

  • okay so i just got my pills. today is friday and my period will start monday or somewhere during the week but my mom told me to take one of the hormone pills, now i don’t know what to do after watching your video, do i continue taking them? or wait till my period starts

  • When I first started birth control I took it at 10pm and woke up at 4am super nauseous to the point I was actually constantly sick every 5 minutes all morning. It was so horrible it’s scared me off of trying any new pill even 2 years later

  • omg I was stressed about not having my period, cause I took them 100% correctly and I didn’t know it was normal to not get a period or to get bleeding half way through which is exactly what happened to me! I feel so much better now, thank you!!!

  • I’m using birth control pills last 3yrs ago…and I stop it…just want to know if I want to get pregnant again…the pills I take it is no side effects of my pregnancy?

  • Do you have to take the combined pill at the exact same time every day? Or is there a time period that you should have it in? Or does it not matter what time you take it, so long as you take one every day?

  • I was supposed to start taking my pills this Sunday and I completely forgot should I take it today (Monday) I’m not sure if I should take it today or wait till my next cycle helppp??? I’m on my 3rd day

  • Hello good day.
    I’m not certain if u can assist me but I’ve been taking a birth control for the first time on the 2nd of August and the 1st of August my mensural cycle ended I’ve been on the pill from the second until the 8th which is today, I have been intimate with my boyfriend and he actually “came” inside of me,, am I protected from pregnancy?

  • i’ve been on the pill only for like 3-4 days and i just feel so nauseous and sad and sick. i don’t think it’s gonna be a good month:(

  • So if my FIRST DAY of my period is Monday, I can start my pill Sunday??? I’m interested in not having periods on the weekends (Sunday Method)

  • i heard you could gain a lot of weight when taking the pill for the first time. Since i’m someone who is quite sensitive to weight gain i wouldn’t want this to be hard to get rid of. Can it be helped with a healthy diet, or can a healthy diet just reduce it? I’m simply going on the pill for hormonal acne, so since i’m in my teens i was thinking i might be even more prone to the weight gain. Don’t know if this is true though.

  • Great movie, with one mistake (or not made clear). The withdrawal bleeding that happens when you stop the pill (or take the placebo) is NOT an indication that there wasn’t any fertilisation. You still can be pregnant if you forgot enough pills and ovulation did occur.

  • Hi Doctor, I had unprotected sex before finishing my 1st pills cycle/pack; on the 20th day (1st time taking them) is it risky? Can I get pregnant?

  • Herpes is a serious and recurring disease which can’t be cured through drugs or injections by the American doctors but the best way to deal with Herpes is by taking natural herbs medicine for it, I have read about DR ogugu the great herbalist doctor who cure me from herpes with his powerful herbal medicine. i contacted him to know how he can help me and he told me never to worry that he will help me with the natural herbs from God!after 2 days of contacting him, he told me that the the herbal medicine has been ready and he sent it to me via UPS SPEED POST and it got to me after 3 days!i used the medicine as he instructed me (MORNING and EVENING) and i was cured!its really like a dream but i am so happy! for the people suffering from the following diseases, Cancer, hypothyroidism, Herpes, COPD, HIV, Arthritis, Hpv, Infections,Liver Disease, Autoimmune Diseases, Parkinson’s disease,Lupus Canker sore and more should contact him for his herbal medicine because i am a living testimony and i was cured of herpes and his medicine is legit. i sent him what he requested and he sent me his medicine which i took for 3 good weeks and today am out here with negative result. when i went for test i was so happy after going through his medication. you can reach him through his email [email protected] or call whatsapp number:+2347011196745

  • Hi dr. Sam,thank u for this vedio.but i have one question.i usually take a pill in the last day of my period,now my question is.what if my last period end this coming thursday,should i take the thursday hormone pill,which is the hormone pill starts saturday?

  • I just got my pack and overall I understand it pretty well MINUS the sugar pills. So once I’m almost finished with a pack and the only pills left are the pack of the sugar pills, do I take those sugar pills DAILY like regular birth control pills? Do they help control me NOT getting pregnant like regular pills? What happens if I don’t take the sugar pills for that last week.. I’m so confused

  • erm. so l’m confused as all hell. Do you start in the red week marked pills then…go active pills or start in the active? you couldn’t show an example? l’ve thrown the shit out

  • Hi Dr. Sam, I just got my prescription today and I want to start straight away. Do I have to start on the first hormone pill (the one that says Saturday) even though today is Thursday? Like can I skip the first five hormone pills so I can get to the one that says Thursday? Or should I just wait til it’s Saturday to start so it’s easier for me to follow through?

  • Maybe we should teach the importance of the fact that Sex should be reserved for marriage? And creating a family? Might stop a baby from coming but it doesn’t prevent spreading diseases.

    Don’t put a dick in it unless you’re ready to be a mom. This goes for men too. Buck up and raise your kids you heathens.

  • This is sooo facinating to me. I used to take these kinds of pills and I noticed I always felt…. more tired and weaker. I always wondered why.
    When I am in my luteal phase in my cycle I feel pretty bad…
    So these pill keep you in the luteal phase basically ���� that explains alot!

  • If you are supposed to have your cycle during the duds then why don’t they tell you start( first time) the pack once your periods over. Wouldn’t that regulate everything and not mess your period all up?

  • For those looking into long term birth control, the pill is perhaps the most powerful tool they have. It, is, however important to understand its health effects, including interaction with other medication, impact upon female physiology and more. It is always advisable to consult with a physican before opting for a birth control program

  • I don’t have my menstruation for 3 months i just got my first menstruation 4 months ago then what if i will not have kids in the future how will i survive

  • I started the birth control a day before my period and I called my gyn doctor if it’s okay to keep taking pills during my period she said wait til it’s over so my period ended and started again do I need to wait for it to take effect?

  • one question, if I am having my period this Saturday, can I start on monday(day of today) with the hormone pills and take each pill according to date and continue taking the hormone pills even my period starts on the 6th day? Or do I start with monday with sugar pills?

  • All forms of contraception are demonic in origin and nature. God meant for the earth to be filled and not depopulated.If you rely on God faithfully and live a holy life He will provide for all your needs.No one should lie to you that you must have family planning due to economic hardship.That is a lie from the pit.The devil does the opposite of what God has set in motion.God creates,the devil destroys.That said, a married couple need to have children based on agreement. If they do not want any more babies it is simple.Ask God to shut your womb.Do not use natural or artificial means of contraception. Spilling seed outside your wife is a sin in the Word.The mighty I AM, He is the giver of life.You have no right to decide who dies,especially your own child who is forming in you.It is pure cold blooded murder and that blood will be asked of you in judgement.Contraceptives have increased promiscuity before marriage,exactly the opposite of what is laid down for us in the Word of God.The minute you have sex before marriage with your fiancee, you have already ended your own marriage even before it starts.You open legal doorways for the enemy to attack your marriage due to fornication.Demons will be assigned to ensure that marriage fails no matter how long it will take.That is why divorce rates are astronomical.That is why marriages never take long for fights to start,petty unexplained fights that turn into full battles involving the children. The devil hates marriage and family dearly and will do anything to destroy them,ultimately destroying the lives of the children thus creating a dysfunctional society.Pills are meant to kill a foetus after conception.They may tell you it acts before the fusion of seed but it does act after e.g morning after pill that is just a more concentrated version of the pill hence ‘more effective’.It is basically abortion. Abortion is a sin before God.Pill usage is evil no matter how you will receive this message.Wake up from spiritual blindness and repent of murder for the time is at hand for the return of the Son of Man.The number of innocent souls killed without cause is too high.God must and will ask for that blood and will exact vengeance on the unrepentant souls. Repent of ignorance and share the message if you value human life.Shalom.

  • hi I just started taking birth control last month. My period last month was a couple days longer than usual and this month I had a tiny bit of spotting and my period is no where in sight and I have not been sexually active for a while. Is this a normal side effect within the first few months?

  • The pill causes cancer. So do all hormonal contraceptives. In addition, they cause abortion when they fail as contraceptives. Now, if you’re for abortion, that won’t matter to you, but calling it “contraception” is misleading, and I thought some of you would like to know they are also abortion pills.

  • Hi Doc, please help me. Im using diane 35 for 2mos and my menstruation is regular. In my 7days of rest periods, on the 5th day of my rest days my period is about to start. But now on my 3rd month of taking the pills, i was delayed today. �� I dont know why. I so afraid. My baby is only 1 and 1/2yr old.
    Im not skipping my pills.
    I remembered that, on my 3rd month of taking pills, i took my pills every morning then i changed it to take in the evening.

  • STOP ABORTION! A country which permits the murder of babies has no
    future, if you committed abortion as a mother or ‘doctor’ or if you are a
    pharmacist who gave the ‘MORNING AFTER PILL’ and other contraceptives
    like the ‘INTRAUTERINE DEVICE’ which prevent implantation of the baby in
    the womb, please confess your sin in a Catholic Church, as soon as
    possible. DO NOT KILL is one of the ten commandments.MURDER IS A MORTAL

  • Hi Dr. Sam. I’ve been using a combination pill for over a year now and I switched to a new pill this month they’re of the same brand and a combination pill as well. I finished taking the 28 pill of the old pack including the placebo before starting the new pill pack the next day. My question is am I protected right away? or do I still need to use a back up method for 7 days? We had unprotected sex just after 3 days of taking the new pill I switched to. Thank you!

  • I have an emergency question!! It’s my first time taking birth control. I lost my pack on a Wednesday and my pack began Saturday. I was at the last week of the pack which are the brown pills so Saturday Sunday Monday Tuesday and Wednesday I took the brown pills but when I lost the pack Wednesday and picked up the new pack on Thursday I started with the hormone pills instead of finishing the brown pills for 2 more days Thursday and Friday. I realized on Saturday that I was suppose to be taking the brown pills so I took the 2 I had missed. Should I have done that? Also when I got the new pack it was Thursday so I placed the sticker beginning with Thursday on the pack. I’ve been taking the hormone pills regularly but I’m afraid I’ll be out of place by the time I have to take the brown pills. I’ll be missing brown pills since I took the 2 to replace the ones I didn’t take from the pack I lost. If I don’t take the brown pills for this pack is that fine? Please someone help!! It’s my first time taking the pills. If it’s confusing I’d be glad to show someone what I mean over FaceTime or video.

  • Now that helped me a lot. I never took birth control before and couldn’t seem to understand how they work (for the starts) this is very clear�� ������

  • If you use the pill, you are indicating to your guy that sex is for physical pleasure, rather than for the unity that comes from being father and mother of the same child. So if it’s about pleasure, he WILL leave you for the first woman he thinks will give him more pleasure. If I were a woman, I would not consider that very “liberating”.

  • Ok so I’m 16 and I just started the Tri-Legest Fe birth control pills.. After a week of starting and taking them exactly at 3pm I messed up and took them everyday at around 8a-2pm.

  • My well being was formerly destroyed because of acne disorder consistently. It was actually so nasty that I aimed to hide away. I made use of all the things I could obtain, but it didn’t work. Subsequently I came across the Acne Executioner site (Google it) and I’d eventually encountered something that did wonders. It’s strange but I quite like looking in the mirror for the very first time ever. It’s about time.
