I began taking the bc pill the first day of my period on April 5. My husband and I had sex today and he finished inside me. Have I been on the pill long enough (12 days) to prevent pregnancy or should I take the morning after pill as a precaution?
normally they tell you you should be on birth control for at least a month before having unprotected sex. I don't think 12 days is long enough on the pill. call your pharmacist or your doctors office and ask.
