Took plan B pill. Can I start the birth control from tomorrow?

Hi, I received birth control yesterday from my local health department. I have never been on birth control before. Would it be okay if I started it tomorrow, even if I am not on my period? Also, I took the plan B pill today. Would it still be okay to start birth control tomorrow even if I took the plan B pill today. Also, when I took the plan B pill, it dissolved in my mouth really fast. I was washing it down with a can of mountain dew. Is it still effective?

Hello ma'am and welcome.

Yes you can start with the birth control tomorrow. The plan B should be effective either way, but for your safety I would advise you to avoid taking any and all medications with carbonated/sugar containing drinks.

Please start with the birth control as advised.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
