I’ve been on the pill for 2 months and had sex a few times in the middle of the second month with condoms + he didn’t finish inside me. My boyfriend doesn’t mind having a child young but I want to wait after we’re married at least. When can I stop taking birth control pills? Can I stop at the end of the second month or do I need to still be on them for the 3rd month to prevent pregnancy?
I won’t be having sex after the 2nd month because I need to go somewhere for my job so I wanted to know if it’s safe to stop using them at the end of the 2nd month.

Not sure I understand your question. If you want to stop pills regardless, you won’t get pregnant from having had sex weeks ago if you stop them now. However, if you want to wait until after youre married to get pregnant, then you should stop taking them after you get married or use another method

@li612: I’ve just heard stories about people who stopped taking it then got pregnant either months weeks or days after. I don’t want that to happen to me because I’m not in that position to have a baby right now.

Hmm the way you phrased your question is a little confusing, but maybe this will help-
When you have sex, the guys sperm can live for a FEW days (think 3 at the most) inside you. If you are on birth control and are taking regularly as directed (same time every day, not missing any days) you have almost no chance of getting pregnant.
Once you stop taking birth control all bets are off. If you have sex you could end up pregnant. (unless you are still using condoms to prevent). If you wont be having sex, no birth control is fine, if you are still going to be sexually active then you’d need some form of prevention- birth control condoms etc.

You can stop them as soon as you stop having sex. If you don’t plan on stopping the sex, then don’t stop the pills
