If it works for you.: Pretty much all of the oral combo contraceptives have similar effecacy and risk profile, but one-pill does not fit all. If you don't have any side effect from it and it is affordable, then it is a good one for you. There are many different pills available and so if this does not fit, talk to your doc and likely u will be given a trial of something else. Consult your doc. Good luck.

Month 1: If you start the pill the first day of your period then the pill should be effective the first month that you take it.
