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.
