You can use oc pills for a few years without a break.If you dont want a child for 2 years,then you can use it for 2 years and then take a break.

Dear,for newly married couple the first choice is oral pills if there no issues against it like blood pressure and other medical conditions where it can not be taken.They are very safe and effective.You have to take them daily irrespective you sexual activity.You have take one tablet daily from 5th day of cycle to next 21 days,then break for 7 days and start new pack after that.This has to be taken till you do not want pregnancy.take care.

Hi there
There are some side effects for both oc pills ans well as nuvaring.There may be irregular bleeding,weight gain,low back pain etc. as side effects.Only difference is that you will have to remember to take the pills every day and nuvaring is only introduced once and valid for a long period.Different people tolerate side effects in different ways.If you cannot remember to take the pills then nuvaring might be a better idea for you.
To answer your second question,regardless of when you have sex,you will need to take the pills as prescribed.Otherwise you wont be protected.
