Q: HOW SOON DOES LOW OGESTREL BC PILLS START WORKINGG??

I began my bc pill regime with the quick start method which means starting any day providing that you are not pregnant. I am on Low Ogestrel 28 and was wondering how long after quick starting birth control can I have sex without additional forms of BC. I know that the answer is not a month because the whole point of quick start is so that women do not get pregnant while waiting for their next period to begin the pill. Everyone has different answers, some say a week, others two.what do you know about quick starting?

I'm afraid birth control is outside my area of expertise.  I'd suggest calling your pharmacist or your doctor's office.  They should be able to give you the most accurate answer.
