Can I start taking my birth control pills and have sex now, 5 weeks after giving birth?

Yes, it is generally recommended to wait at least 6 weeks after giving birth before starting a contraceptive pill. However, the specific timing can vary depending on various factors. If your healthcare provider has advised you to wait 6 weeks, it is recommended to follow their guidance. It is important to consider factors such as breastfeeding, the type of contraceptive pill prescribed, and any other medications being taken. It is also important to note that certain types of contraceptive pills may be less effective than others, so it is advisable to use additional forms of contraception, such as condoms, to minimize the risk of pregnancy.
