So I just recently started the bc sprintec but prior I was on the depo shot me and my boyfriend of two years do not use any other form of bc and it is my first month on the pill he has never finished inside of me and has always pulled out a couple days ago I finished my first month and I was wondering if it was normal not to start the day after I was off the pill? Also I just got a yeast infection and I've read and heard that could be a sign of pregnancy. I'm really worried I've never had to deal with this please if anyone has any advice I'd appreciate it thanks

Yeast infections are very common. For sure, pregnant people get them, but who gets them most are simply people with vaginas. [Smile]

When just starting any new method of hormonal contraception, it tends to take the body a while to adjust in a lot of different ways. With the birth control pill, it might take as long as three packs before side effects fade and your withdrawal bleeds show up on schedule.

But, even when your body is used to the pill, they may well not appear the first day of the placebo pills: they don't for many pill users. The deal is just that withdrawal bleeds should start somewhere in that week. [Smile]
