Hi doctor, I am about to start taking althea birth control pills for the first time and I have some questions about this. 1. Im not taking it on the first day of menses so i understand that we should use a barrier method for 7 days. What are the chances of getting pregnant if we have unprotected intercourse on day 8 of althea pills? Is the 7 day wait equivalent to taking the pills on the first day of menses? 2. I have an important event 3 months and I calculated the the 7 day pill-free phase will fall on the date that i dont want to menstruate. How can I postpone my menstruation for a few days? Thanks doc!
