Use a backup method if it will make you more comfortable, but she should be absolutely fine.

You’ll be fine. Use a backup if you want more peace of mind, though.

shes probably fine but unless you are willing to risk getting pregnant that first time when you DON’T use one, just use one. It’s not worth the risk and really the logic doesn’t make sense. You’re going to come fast no matter what most likely because you’ve never had sex and it will still feel great. It’s not like its your one chance in life to feel the skin to skin contact. Better than having egg to sperm contact!

Like everyone else said, she will probably be fine, but if you want to use backup to ease your minds, I’d recommend condoms over spermicide. Spermicide causes UTIs and that would definitely ruin your honeymoon!

I’m under the understanding that the pill is effective 7 days after you start using it for the first cycle.  That way, any egg that was released is now gone, and the pill will prevent any further eggs.  Since she started mid-way though a cycle, that cycle was probably a bit unusual but it sounds like she took a whole additional cycle and will have her second “period” right before the wedding, am I right?  If so, she’s protected to the full extent of the pill ie. 98-99%.

If you’re unsure, read the information insert that comes in the pill box. They very clearly explain when to start taking it at the begining and how long it takes for full efficacy.

@_honeybird:  +1 I hate spermicide, If she easily get’s UTI’s I wouldn’t reccomend it.


@bjh293:  Don’t be frustrated with her. I started taking it when I was 16 and it took me a long time to get used to taking it, remembering, knowing how it works, etc. It makes a lot of women have really bad emotional side effects too. I hated the pill. 

Anyway, you should be covered. If your not comfortable use a back up, but consider her medical history before deciding on spermicide.

I think condoms are more reliable than spermicide. I also found spermicide rather unpleasant to apply, (but then maybe guys feel the same way about putting on a condom 🙂

Also you’ll need to use lube, and many condoms are lubricated, which will help.

Anyway, it’s just small sacrifices until the pill is definitely working. Sex takes a while to get good at anyway, so when you go off the condom (or spermicide) it’ll just be another way the sex improves after the first month. Good on you for waiting and have a great wedding and honeymoon!
