I have a question... I have a baby who is 11 weeks old and I started birth control pills back about 5 weeks ago. I have had 1 period so far and am 1 week into my 2nd month of pills. I was wondering how long it takes for birth control to kick in? And also what should your basal body temp be while taking the pill? I have been having breast pain and a little cramping so I think I may have ovulated on my own... I took my temp this morning right when I woke up to see and it was 98.45, so I'm wondering if I ovulted on the pill. I'm a little worried because my husband and I have had unprotected sex and an 11 week old baby! Thanks for your help Dr.Q!
