time needed after starting the pill to be effective
Sep 19, 2002
I'm still a virgin and I promised myself that before I ever had sex, I'd be on birth control. I'm just wondering how long I need to take it in order for it to fully work. I've heard that it can be a couple months. Is this true?

Questions about pregnancy, birth control, and reproductive health should be directed to your OB/GYN or agencies that deal with those issues.
