This is my first pack of this new pill , I wasn't previously on a birth control before starting . I started my last cycle 5/24/17 and began taking the pill 5/25/17. I had protected sex 7/1/17 with a male condom as well as consistent use of the pill , I have not had sex since that date

Dear customer

Thank you for the quick reply.

No,there is very slim chance (almost nil) possibility of pregnancy here.

You were taking your new birth control pill regularly at the same time everyday. Your sex was protected & the condom was intact.

When starting birth control pills, it will usually take 5-10 days for the pill to become effective at preventing pregnancy.

The spotting & cramping you are having can be due to mild hormonal changes because of your new pills.This is normal.as you will start placebo pills tonight,you will have now your breakthrough bleeding/menstrual period.

So there is nothing to worry.It is absolutely normal.

Nothing of concern here.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you so much for that reassurance , I have tried to b very by the book with starting this and making sure I take proper precautions , your response was very helpful

Dear customer

Yes,although you have taken proper precautions earlier also (by using condom). And by now your pills are also completely effective.

So nothing to worry.

Thank you for the words of appreciation & for using just answer website.

God bless you & take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
