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.

Does the Contraceptive pill work during your period?

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.

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.
