Not ideal: Starting birth control pills late is not ideal, because it gives the body an opportunity to start maturing an egg, but since it is only a day, it probably won't increase the likelihood of getting pregnant. If you want to play it safe, use condoms during this cycle. ...Read more

Starting Mercilon for the first time is it ok to start after 5th day of period, how long before it becomes effective? Can I take 2 strips back-to-back

Use condoms: Starting your new pill on any day of your cycle, other than the very first day of bleeding, means that you won't be protected for at least a few weeks. I usually recommend that women continue to use condoms for their first pack of birth control pills to be safe. In the beginning, use the packs as directed. If it is working well for you, you can then use this pill continuously to space periods. ...Read more
