My boyfriend and I had sex the Sunday I started my new birthcontrol pack. It was a few hours before I started my new pack and it was after 7 days of the placebo pills in which I'd had my period. My period was already gone by then but after 7 days of the placebo pills could the protection not be as strong? I know you should be converted for those blank pills but still just a little worried.
Hello and hope you are doing well.
These sugar pills are to give you a chance to have a withdrawal bleeding to simulate a period even though it hasn’t built up a lining. They are taken just to ensure continuity in taking pills. If you have taken your pills as directed for the entire cycle then you should have almost less than a 1% chance of getting pregnant. Do write to us again with more queries. Keep us posted.
Best luck and warm regards!
