Switching birth control pills
An_251537 posted:
I was on a monophasic birth control pill, sprintec, but starting my third week on birth control my dr. switched me to a triphasic, trinessa. The pill is suppose to be effective after the first week so am i still protected? Or because i started a different pill do i need to start all over?
