Although you will have immediate protection if you start the new Birth Control pill on time, it may take a month or two for your body to fully be adjusted to the new birth control.

It takes a month for birth control to become effective and for your body to adjust to it.

You could get side effects for about 3 months. Your body just needs time to adjust. If they persist after that, you made need to switch your brands of birth control.

You can switch forms of birth control to what is most comfortable for you. If you would like to switch birth control consult your physician so that she/he can choose a birth control pill that is right for you.

You can switch birth control pills at any time in your cycle as long as you take an active pill on the assigned days.

If you're giving birth while on birth control, it's probably time to switch pills.

If you have just started taking birth control pills, then this can occur. Usually it can take a few months for your body to adjust to taking birth control. However, if you have been on birth control for a while I would recommend that you see your Doctor and consider changing to a different birth control as it may be more suitable for you.

There are no medical risks from switching birth control, as long as the new option is a reasonable choice for you. If you switch birth control and start the new one on time, there is no increased risk due to the switch; you have the same protection as if you had been on the new one all the time.

No it is not bad to switch birth control pills. Sometimes a woman needs a different mix of hormones because pf spotting or breakthrough bleeding after 3 months,or you may have to switch brands due to your insurance company's coverage on birth control. Changing brands does not change the effectiveness, although it may change side effects for a few women. During this time of severe shortages of some birth control pills, many women are having to change to a slightly different pill. While this is frustrating and inconvenient, luckily it does not increase the risk of pregnancy.

Yes birth control changes your cycle causing your body to have to adjust to the birth control after a few weeks it should become a normal schedule.

If you start the birth control pill on schedule, no later than the day on which you would have started the next cycle of the birth control patch, you are protected during the switch. If you were late in starting the pill, you may not have protection until you've taken the pill correctly for seven days.

Birth control is what is used to prevent unintended pregnancy, there are multiple different types of birth control that work in different ways, it is ignorant to say 'birth control' to mean one specific type of birth control. Without knowing what type of birth control you're referring to we cannot answer your question - some birth control does absolutely nothing to your hormones, some birth control completely shuts down your hormones.

Some different forms of birth control includes birth control pills, morning-after pills, condoms, diaphragms, vasectomy for men, and sterilization for women.

Different forms of birth control can have different side effects. Birth control pills can cause cramping,and possible blod clots.

No, birth control is exactly the same if you've already had sex or not.

To switch from the birth control pill to Depo PRovera, just get the shot at any time without missing your scheduled birth control pills. You'll have immediate protection from the day of the shot, as long as you took the pills as scheduled in the weeks before.

When you switch brands of birth control to a generic, you are still getting the same hormones and the same dosage of hormones, the only difference is that the pills were made by different companies. If you have been on birth control for at least 2 months, it is still safe to have unprotected intercourse even though you are switching birth control. If you haven't been on birth control for at least 2 months you should use a back-up method, such as condoms, during the first week of starting your new birth control. If you want to be even safer, you could wait 2 weeks to have unprotected sex.

your body was used to that birth control. It is just trying to re-adjust itself.

Yes, you can change to a different method of birth control. You can have the copper IUD inserted at anytime, and can start a different hormonal method of birth control after ten weeks.

There is no combination of birth control that cancels its effectiveness.

Every birth control works different for each woman. There are many different combinations of hormones. Any change in hormones could make your body act different. Sometimes you have to see what birth control works best for you.

It is definitely safer to switch from the birth control to the shot, as you have protection throughout. If a woman on the birth control pill gets a Depo Provera injection, she will have immediate protection against pregnancy. If a woman not on birth control pills gets a Depo Provera injection, she may have a delay in protection, depending on where she was in her menstrual cycle.

The question can't be answered unless you say what brand of birth control pill. The different colors include different medications in different brands.

No. birth control pills do not make you infertile.

Yes. As directed by all doctors and on the instruction labels of all birth control pills, you are supposed to take your birth control everyday and at the same time. If you take your birth control at different times everyday, it is not allowing the birth control to adapt in your body the way it is supposed to and it decreases the effectiveness of the birth control as well. Some side effects of taking your pill at different times of each day may include: pregnancy, late/irregular periods, and spotting or breakthrough bleeding.

Different methods to prevent pregnancy.
