No chance of pregnancy if you take your Birth Control everyday at the same time. You are still protected during the placebo week even if you have unprotected intercourse.

If you are taking birth control pills and had unprotected sex while on period during the placebo pills are you still protected?

A placebo pill is most of the time made of sugar it does nothing the way placebo pills work if they ever do is if they trick the mind. You need to take your pill every day for full effectiveness. When you start the pill you are suppose to take one pill every day as recommended everyday for a month before having unprotected sex. Since you where on your period you don't have the highest chance of getting pregnant, but you still have a chance to get pregnant believe it or not but not likely. If you don't want to get pregnant don't have unprotected sex days before your period without being on the pill as recommended. Use condoms to protect yourself against STDs and HPVs.

If you are starting the placebo pills on birth control is it possible to get pregnant then?

In theory, if you have been taking your active pills properly, you should not get pregnant during your placebo pills. The pill essentialy stops you from releasing an egg. As such, if no egg was released, you should not be able to get pregnant during your period. However, that's only if you took the pill as directed.

If you have been on the pill for thirteen years and have taken it properly but haven't taken it for the past three weeks and had unprotected sex what are your chances of becoming pregnant?

Your chances are quite high. It just depends on you and your body, if you are trying to get pregnant be sure to take folic acid to improve your little ones chance in the uterus. Still very high. All you have to do is miss 2 or 3 days of pills and it knocks out all of the "control". Then condoms are the safe measure to take. Unlike norplant, or depo shot, the "pill" does not build up in your system. Once you take the placebo or sugar pills of the week, your body has dismissed all the birth control chemicals. I hope that helps. AJ

Why wouldn't a doctor be notified if a patient is getting a placebo or a treatment?

In a double-blind test, if the doctor treating a patient knows whether the patient is getting a real treatment or not, they may (perhaps unconsciously) treat the patient differently, or worse let slip that the patient is taking the placebo. This will affect the results (as it changes the effect of the placebo) and can ruin a drug trial.

What is a double-blind study?

I want to know if a medication has the desired effect. I'm going to give half the subjects the 'live' med, and half will get a placebo. The subjects will not know which one they are getting. That's one level of "blind". Studies show that there is a measurable affect based on the fact that the person distributing the med's knows who is getting the med and who is getting the placebo. So I am going to package the med's and give them to the distributing nurse, and the nurse will not know who is getting the med and who is getting the placebo. That is "double blind" model.

Why don't I have a period during while taking the sugar pills?

You may not get a period during the placebo week/sugar pills,either because your birth control did not give you a period because of the hormones, or you may be pregnant. Pregnancy typically occurs when you do not get a period. If you do not take your birth control pills everyday at the same time you will increase your chances of becoming pregnant.

Can you make your menstrual come by taking the placebo pill if you never been on birth control?

No, the placebo pills are exactly that, placebo. (just sugar pills). It would be like expecting a tic tac to bring on your menstrual cycle. If you are on the pill, the placebo pills will start your cycle because they have no active ingredients. If you think you are pregnant and want your period to come, go to a doctor/do a pregnancy test or take the morning after pill if it's not too late.

Brownish spotting while on pill for a month am i pregnant?

Spotting and breakthrough bleeding is a side effect that may occur while beginning birth control. This side effect can last up to 3 months. However, if you do not receive your period during the placebo week, you may have become pregnant. Waiting at least 1-2 months to have unprotected sex while on birth control pills will be safer because by then, your body has adapted to the hormones in the pills.

Is it safe to take the placebo pills a week early to get this period earlier?

That would mean stopping your pills a week early, no that is not a good idea, you could ovulate and get pregnant. You would be better off skipping the placebo pills and going straight to the new pack, the day you should start the placebo - so you don't have breakthrough bleeding that month. (skip your period completely that cycle.)
