When does Nordette become effective
Hi,

I am about to start my very first course of Birth control, therefore Nordette.
I know that I must start taking it on the first day of my monthly cycle.
When I start taking the Pill, when can I have sexual intercourse?
Should I wait a month after taking the pill?

Thank you for all the assistance.
