I am on the pill as well…have been for awhile….don’t think it is the same as what you are taking but I trust it..I am 36 and have been on birth control for awhile with no need for any alternative methods.  If you want to be certain you will not become pregnant…use condoms as well….even though I don’t think they will be necessary.

I also use Loestrin. Different birth control works for different people, i know some girls on the board have had horrible side effects from Loestrin, but luckily you and me are not one of them. For a long time I used condoms along with the pill, obviously since I’m not married yet I didn’t wait till marriage to have sex, but Fiance is the only one that I’ve been on the pill with and not used a backup form with birth control. Two and a half years later and we’ve had no problems, the really important thing is to make sure that you take it at the same time every day.

@smiley90: I believe the time window is three hour, but setting an alarm is a great idea, I do the same thing. But I set mine at night for my bedtime, otherwise I’d end up sleeping in and missing it all the time, I’m sooo not a morning person.

If you are worried, make sure to bring condoms. COndoms plus birth control will make sure you are covered 🙂 

I can’t help with the BC brand, I take ortho cyclen, but I would still recommend a condom if you really do not want kids right away.

as long as you take it everyday you will be fine. I have been off on my pills by about 45 minutes to an hour and have never had any problems. 4 months is plenty of time for it to work.  If your still worried you can  always use condoms
