Detailed Answer:

I have read your query with diligence.

There are many types of contraceptive pills available in the market.

For you, I would like to brief about 2 types of contraception.

One is called Emergency contraception like I-pill that can be taken within 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse to prevent pregnancy.

One other form is the routine combined oral contraceptive pills available commercially as Femilon, Diane 35, XXXXXXX and many other brands. These need to be taken continuously for 21 days in a month to prevent pregnancy.

In either case, there is no need to use condoms as additional contraception unless you have multiple partners.

Hope this information is useful to you.
