Pregnancy prevention pills

My girl friend - with whom I've waited to have sex with until she was on pregnancy prevention pills since I dislike condoms - was at the doctor's today and I assume she'll pick up the pills in short time... I say this because I'd like to know when it's safe to have sex after she takes the first pill (of many..)?

I am aware that it takes a mens. cycle before it's as safe as that prevention method permits; but I've heard that one can start having sex like a week after and enjoy almost but not quite the safety (but very close) to the safety achieved by waiting 28 days..

Any help?

(By the way I assumed that due to the thread's very simple and uncolorful language and lack of pictures that this doesn't belong in Mature, but if it
does then by all means move it..)

Neither of you are concerned about STDs?

He is clean, he works out all the time and takes care of his body so he is safe.

This would have been a good question for the doctor, or barring that, the pharmacist when you pick up the prescription.

They usually say you must finish the first pack (1 month) before you should stop using a "back-up" method.

Some pills (the tri-phasic kind) start out with a really strong dose the first week and I *think* those are generally effective after that 1 week, ut I would check with the doctor/pharmacist to make sure and I would probably want to use a back-up method anyway to be safe.

Also be sure you use a back-up method when she's taking medications that decrease the pill's effectiveness like most antibiotics.

if you want to prevent pregnancy, just get the glasses that the army gives to recruits in basic training. They are so ugly that no one will want to have sex with you. Their nickname was BCG's, or Birth Control Glasses.

That's like saying that I won't eat lobster because I don't want to have to wear the little bib.

I haven't made a thread about this because it coincided with the gal having her 16th child. My wife is now pregnant with our 3rd (due in June) and she was on the pill. 99.9% effective my ass

Can we leave the seafood analogies out of this thread?

Are you the girlfriend? I ask because you seem to know quite a bit about the person who posted.

If not, being clean, working out & taking care of ones body will not guarantee being "safe". Being STD free to begin with (both parties) & monogamy is the best way to avoid an STD.

It was a joke with a history.

It's a joke, based on a large group of previous posts from the OP.

First I paid her compliments that I may or may not have completely felt. Then I kept/made eye contact with her several times during the day without saying anything. I complimented the dinner she had made. I slipped a mickey into her drink and and had me some sex.

Parcher - DON'T trust "the pill" 100% EVER. Trust me on this one. Learn to love the condoms, they are your best friend.

I would only trust a woman on the pill as my only means of birth control *IF* I really wanted to have kids with her

Look at some Japanese manufactured condoms. Far better than any crap we have here in the states as far as looks, smell, function, etc, etc. Trojan has got to be the worst name in condoms ever, if that is what you used I don't blame you for hating them.
