When Can You Have Intercourse After Taking The Pill?
Hello Danderiana, Thank you for the question.
Birth control pills are one of the contraceptives that contain synthetic hormones that function to prevent pregnancy. If birth control pills are used appropriately, the effectiveness of birth control pills can reach 99% to prevent pregnancy. Birth control pills can consist of pills containing the hormones estrogen and progesterone and pills that contain the hormone progesterone alone. The Yaz birth control pill you are taking is a birth control pill that contains the hormones estrogen and progesterone. These birth control pills should start to be consumed on the first day of menstruation. If you take birth control pills on the first day of menstruation then you can immediately be protected from pregnancy so you can have sexual relations without having to wait. However, if you take it at another time (not on the first day of menstruation), then you have to wait until you take birth control pills for 7 days before you are protected from pregnancy. If you want to have sex, then you have to use a condom for 7 days. You are advised to take birth control pills every day at the same time so that these pills remain effective.
We recommend that before taking birth control pills you consult with your doctor first because not all women can use the same birth control pill. There are certain health conditions that cause a woman to not be able to take birth control pills that contain the hormone estrogen. If you have further questions about using this pill, do not hesitate to consult with your doctor immediately so that you receive clearer information.
