Default How quickly do birth control pills work? – 12-24-2008, 11:40 PM

I just started taking birth contol pills, so I’m still in the first package, just starting week four. I am sexually active with my boyfriend, and was just wondering if the birth control pills are effective in the first package, or if it takes a few sets of pills to really work. Any advice/help is appreciated.

when i got birth control they said 7 days but i’ve also heard it can take up to a month or three to work. i waited the 7 days and now i’m at the end of my 3rd month of bc and everything’s good.

It varies depending on th ebrand of pill you have, if you read the leaflet inside the pack it shoudl explain how long to wait.
