When you first start taking Cyclessa or when you restart after you miss a dose, it can take seven days before it is effective in preventing pregnancy. During this seven-day period, you should use back-up methods of birth control, such as condoms or a spermicide. Talk with your doctor pharmacist about when you will need back-up birth control while using Cyclessa, and follow their instructions.

If an egg should get fertilized, Cyclessa also makes it harder for the fertilized egg to attach to your uterus.
