Morning After
Dear Gynae Doc,

I have not been on a contraceptive in over 4 years, if my partner does have an accident I use Norlevo Morning After Pill. I have used it over the past 4 months once or twice a month which I dont think is doing my body any good. When I take the morning after (Norlevo) I bleed a week later, I used Norlevo a week ago and would like to know whether I can start my Pill (Triphasil) with the short bleeding I have this week from the morning after or should I wait a month for my proper periods? Does the morning after affect the pill in any way? I dont want to fall pregnant and how long do I wait before having sex?
Thank you.

You can start Triphasil with the bleed you have had. You have to take 7 active pills before you are protected. the morning after pill does not affect Triphasil, but you may have more side effects because you will have taken a lot of hormones close together.
