When taking birth control pills and you start taking a new pack do you have to use protection
You need to use protection when you are taking birth control pills. This is because it will help to reduce the risk for acquiring sexually transmitted infections which also include HIV.
you should always use protection no matter what. birth control pills don't always work 100% and they can also cause you to be pregnant unknowingly. use protection all the time.
Yes always use a back up unless your ready to be a parent. Birth control isn't 100%, condoms aren't 100%. So use both.
