My boyfriend and I are planning to have intercourse next month without a condom. Could you suggest which birth control pills I could use? When should I start having the pills? As it is a one-time activity (as he will be traveling abroad) how soon after the act can I discontinue the pills?

In that case, plan to have sex during your safe period, which is between day one to ten of your periods. During the sustained period you need not use any medication or the contraceptive pill. There is no chance of pregnancy as there is no ovulation happening during this period. However, if you have a doubt, then get back to me.

You can use an emergency pill within 72 hours of intercourse there is no chance of pregnancy. If you want to use oral contraceptive pills, then start a 21-day pill from the third day of periods. However, if you have a doubt, then get back to me.
