birth control


Question by  melkoric (7)

Can you get pregnant right after you switch birth control methods?

Recently I switched from getting the birth control shot to now taking the pill. I am wondering if I could still get pregnant? Do I have to be on the pill for 3 months for it to be effective, or am I okay since I got the shot before?

You don't have to be on the pill for three months, but usually you do have to take it for at least a week before completely relying on it.

Generally you only need to be on the pill for a week in order for it to be effective. If you start the pill the day your period is supposed to start, then it is supposed to be effective immediately. I have never heard of anyone having to wait 3 months before it worked, but you should consult your Dr.

The pill is generally effective after seven days from when you first take it, providing you take it every single day. Your partner should use a condom if you want to be sexually active during this time.
