User Profile
hello ma'am,
m 22 yr old and only two months have passed after my marriage. the problem i recently faced was that i got my periods on 30th of april n has experienced bleeding for almost 30 days.
my sonography report says " both ovaries show multiple small follicles with echogenic stroma " my doctor suggested me DIANE 35 which m taking from last1 week n bleeding is also stooped.
but during this period of 1 week i had unsafe sex for 2-3 times
my question is " do i need to use some other precaution methods while having intercourse or DIANE 35 is sufficient enough to treat both hormonal disorder and birth control "
please help me out, m unable to contact my doctor and really worried for it

Welcome to ehealthforum,
You are not protected while you are on your first pack of birth control pill use. Hormonal contraceptives start being effective in giving you protection after about 3-4 weeks of regular use. Usually you start having complete protection after you have had a withdrawal bleed (after use of 1 pack of pills) and have started with your next pack. You should have considered using additional protection/back-up form of contraception to remain protected against pregnancy. Chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out if you are having regular periodic ovulation. Look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for examination and tests to rule out pregnancy (if you suspect pregnancy) before you start with next pill pack. Be in regular follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
