The pill
Hey doc.
Im very concerned, my friend is thinking about going onto the pill, purley for the reason of having sex with her boyfriend without the use of a condom.
i would like to know how long it would take for the pill to get into the system and be at full ''functionality'', and, how safe is it for her, they've both been tested and are both clean, what are the chances of her falling pregnant is they have sex without the condom and he ejaculates inside of her. please, im very concerned for her, i dont think that she should fall pregnant now (she's 23).
please doc, thanks

Dear Nazrac
A girl should be on the pill for 1 month to be safe. There is no guarantee that you won't get a STD or Aids if you have unprotected sex - even if the partner is your wife or husband... unfortunately. It has to do with trust and the other person's sex habits.
