How long is the birth control pill effective?
The birth control pill is effective as long as you take it
regularly. After you stop, you may be able to get pregnant within a
couple of weeks, or your next ovulation may be delayed slightly. If
your periods were regular before, you can expect to ovulate within
2-4 weeks after stopping the birth control pill.
Birth Control Pills work for as long as you continue taking them as directed. The Morning After Pill is an Emergency Contraceptive; it works for the day you had unprotected sex and up to 120 hours after you previously had unprotected sex.
It is not made to protect you from sex you might have tomorrow or next week. You need to use Birth Control for continued protection.
If you take the morning after pill and contiue to take the birth control pill is the birth control still effective for the rest of the month?
If you had missed a pill or been late with a pill, causing you to take the morning after pill, then you should use a back up method of birth control for the next seven days. If you didn't forget a pill or take a pill late, then I'm not sure why you took the morning after pill, but the birth control pill will still be effective even though you took the morning after pill…
Is the contraceptive implant more than 98 percent effective and can it be combined with the birth control pill?
If you weren't on birth control for very long and your boyfriend and you had unprotected sex even though he used the pullout method can you still get pregnant?
To answer your question, yes because he has already released a small amount inside you already.With the birth control it will depend on how long you have been off the pill for it to matter.But remember this the pill is only 95% effective in some cases.

Not using backup birth control (a condom) until the pill becomes effective, or not taking it at the same time every day. It's best to take it within a 2-hour window day to day. For example, if you take your pill at noon everyday, the pill will be MOST effective if you take it at that time & no later than 2 p.m. everyday. If you take your birth control pill at noon everyday, then…
Pills are more effective at preventing pregnancy than the condom is, but the condom can offer prevention of disease, and the pill can't. That's why using both together is the best option -- it maximized both pregnancy prevention and disease prevention. They are most effective together. No temporary birth control is 100% effective, but to answer the original question, the pill is more effective than a condom.
Some studies have shown Reglan to be effective as early as 3-4 days after beginning of treatment. Others have shown that it is not any more effective than a placebo and counseling. Also, I see that this question is in the birth control pill category. Reglan is an anti-emetic and has nothing to do with birth control, just FYI.
Is the birth control pill still effective against pregnancy even though it may be messing up your menstrual cycle?
INH/isoniazid does not affect the birth control pill, but rifampin makes the birth control pill less effective. Talk with your health care provider about alternate methods of birth control during your treatment. Use condoms or abstain from vaginal sex until you have found an alternate method. It's important that you avoid pregnancy at this time.
No. no you cannot. if you are already on birth control and you use the morning after pill because you forgot to take your pill you still must take the pill. if you aren't on birth control but you had unprotected sex and want to use the morning after pill to protect you from that one case it's a good idea. but you can't always use it. it isn't 100% effective and you should really…
If you don't start the birth control pill within the time that the injection was effective, you will need to use a backup method, like condoms or abstinence from vaginal sex, for the first seven days of the first pill pack in order to get uninterrupted protection. Keep in mind that the birth control pill is less effective than Depo Provera, so you may choose to use condoms regularly for additional pregnancy (and disease) protection…
No. If taken correctly and following directions birth control is 99% effective as a means of protection. In this sense a condom will protect you from a STD rather than pregnancy since the birth control pill prevents pregnancy. ADD: you also have to wait about a month when starting birth control or changing birth control. In the first month, it is not yet effective.
If you've been taking a birth control pill then switched to another how long does it take for the new one to be effective?
The new one will be effective as soon as you take it. Since birth control hormones are already in your body, your body will adapt to the new hormones right away. You do not have to use a back up method when switching pills. I was told this by my physician when I switched birth control pills and I was perfectly fine.
