i recently had to take plan b next choice and i wanted to start my birth control pills Ortho Novum 777 but plan b induces a period so i was wondering if it wwas ok to start my birth control pills on the first day of that induced period
After taking plan B there might be some menstrual irregularities. Your periods can come either early or late. It may take at least 1-2 cycles for your periods to normalize. You can take your first pill on the first day of your period or on the first Sunday after your period begins. If you start it on Sunday you may need to use back-up birth control, such as condoms or a spermicide, when you first start using this medication. Discuss it with your doctor about the most appropriate time for starting Ortho Novum 777. Do write to me again.
Best wishes and regards!
