I just got my wisdom teeth taken out yesterday, and they put me under a local anesthetic to put me to sleep.

They also said that it can interfere with the bc pill and that I should take precautions and extra protection when having intercourse. Approx how long should I use condom protection (they say I should still take my pill) before I can have unprotected intercourse?

I'm not sure if anyone will know about this, the surgery clinic I went to is closed today, so I can't call back yet to ask.

You'll want to use a back-up method (be it the condom or another one) for the rest of this cycle of pill during which you took the local anesthetic which is known to interfere with your pill.
