The pill
I want to know how long you have to take the pill before you are fully protected (until you can sex without a condom?) And which medication rules out the pill? (I know that if you r on some medication then the pill won't work, which are the main medicines?)

7 active pills. Many antibiotics can affect the efficacy of the Pill, but there is a long list of other medications. It is best to check before you take anything.
