Hi Your question is: Are you protected on your 7 day break on the contraceptive pill? Providing you have been on the pill for over one month, then you are protected against pregnancy but if you miss a pill you will not be protected. Please note this is advice only & should not be used in place of your Doctors.
Providing you have taken all your pills correctly you will be protected during your seven day break and if you took your first pill of your new pack on the day after your seven day break you should be protected.
Nothing. The doctors today say this is OK. I wish they had said it when I was on the pill.
the contraceptive pill.
No you will be protected against pregnancy.
Can duoluton be taken on 6th day
If you haven't taken your pill you are NOT protected. Must take it everyday to be protected.
Yes. That's just how seasonale, seasonique, and quasense are set up.
no, if you are taking the contraceptive as prescribed, which is normally one a day, then it prevents pregnancy 99.9%. If you missed one or more, i would suggest you to take plan b
Matter of hours, up to a day depending how heavy your period is.
Yes. You are completely protected. I have researched this exact question recently!
If you miss a pill after your 7 day break, the best thing to do is take the one you missed with the one you are due to take.
It depends on the oral contraceptive taken, and the person taking it to how many days into your break your period starts. With regular pill taking and time your period should be easier to predict accurately once your body gets into a regular 'rhythm'. It can start any number of days after taking the last pill in your packet, but usually starts during the 7 day break rather than after.
You should start the birth control pill on the day the contraceptive implant is removed. If you do so, use a backup method of birth control until you've taken seven pills correctly.
The pill consists of 21 days of active pills (ie, containing oestrogen and progestogen) with either a break of seven days, or seven days of a sugar pill. The sugar pill is used to keep the user in a regular habit of taking the pill at the same time each day, every day, whilst bleeding occurs. If you have been taking the pill daily (every day without missing one) you should be safe during your period. As you are not really taking active ingredients for seven days, a pill missed just before or just after the sugar pills does increase the chances of ovulation taking place during the next cycle and pregnancy occuring. Even if you are taking the pill religiously, be aware that no contraceptive is 100% effective.
Well each day that you do not take your pill, your chances of becoming pregnant increases greatly. You can get pregnant almost immediately.
Continue taking the active pill, one for each day you want to delay your period, before taking the non-active pills.
It depends on what pill you are using, if you are on a "mini-pill" of only progesterone you need to take it every 24 hours give or take 1.5 hours on either side. Taking a mini-pill even 3 hours late is the same as missing a pill. Taking most BCP, a combination of estrogen and progesterone - as long as you take it every day - you are protected from pregnancy.
No. Because different contraceptive pills work in different ways, and at different dosages, substituting one for another will not work.
You can either start taking the pill on the first day of your period, which is called day one start, or on the first Sunday after your period, which is called a Sunday start.
yes, if you are on a pill, the combined for example, you will not need to use any other contraceptive during the 7 day break. However, if condoms are your only method of contraception then continue to use these during your period.
1 pill for each of the 3 weeks, most packs have a 7 day sugar pill (placebo pills..they dont do anything except keep you in the habit of taking a pill) and that 21 say + 7 days is your 28 day cycle.
If you're on the oral contraceptive then all you have to do is double take your pills, that is taking two packets back to back without the 7 day break. This way you won't have the withdrawal bleed.
No, my wife does this as well as not stopping taking the active pill after the 21st day so she can control when her period arrives or not so she can do things without worrying about having a period.
It depends on the type.The Combined Oral Contraceptive Pill lasts between 1 and 4 days.The Progestogen-Only Pill or Progestin-Only Pilllasts a day.Ormeloxifene or Centchroman last a month but is less widely used.
