    I would just ask your OBGYN. Why are you taking them so early anyway? I didn't start taking my pills until I went for my 6th week checkup. Your doctor will let you know if anything major would happen while taking the pills after one week of child birth.

    I agree that 12 3 hundred and sixty 5 days old toddlers should not be on the pill - lots greater they should no longer be having intercourse in any respect. the mothers and fathers ought to instruct them approximately intercourse so as that they gained't test on their own and get pregnant/HIV as an end result. No understanding consequences with ignorant experimentation. My era replaced into taught approximately intercourse by employing their mothers and fathers. in the present day's youngsters are no longer and thanks to this we are seeing greater youngsters having intercourse to boot as getting pregnant and the fees of HIV in toddlers are increasing. Whomever this "Dr" T.S. Wiley is, the pill has been shown to no longer reason maximum cancers. The pill is greater ideal to older youngsters (a minimum of 17)and person women who choose the pill for scientific reasons and beginning administration.

    Your doctor will be able to tell you when your regular cycle will begin, or near it. You really need to talk to them about it so you can be as safe as possible from future pregnancy. Until you talk with a doc if you are having sex use other protection just in case.
