A 18-year-old male asked:

Hello, if my gf takes contraceptive pill the first time of her life at the first day of her period. if she takes for 5 days and stop so it is basically the fifth days of her natural period, does ovulation will take place the 14th day the same?

Basics: The typical bc pill works by maintaining a constant daily amount of hormone in a woman's system to prevent egg release. If she takes it a few days and stops, the hormone level falls and egg release can happen at any time. Mid cycle is expected but each body does what it wants. Pregnancy is certainly possible for most of the days involved.
