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.
Skipping the placebos to skip your period:Does not cause harmLowers, rather than increases, the chances of getting pregnantDoesn't interrupt your protection
Missing a placebo pill does not affect the chances of pregnancy.
A placebo has no medical properties at all so, yes, you would be at risk of getting pregnant.
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've been on birth control for over 4 weeks then you're protected against pregnancy.
If you took the active BCP as directed you do not have to worry about pregnancy during the week of placebo pills.
It takes about a month for the pill to really start working, so yes, there is a chance you may be pregnant. Doctor's say you should wait at least a month before having unprotected sex while on BC...
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.
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

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.
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.
Placebo is second best remedy Placebo has therapeutic effects. Placebo has become a bandwagon effect
Generally as a noun.Example: He swallowed the placebo.It also works as "The Placebo Effect", and also the band Placebo.
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.
the pill that represented the placebo
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.
No. Why would someone make a placebo that you can die from?
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.
Changing birth control pills doesn't increase your risk of pregnancy if you started the new pack on time. It is possible to get pregnant even while using the birth control pill correctly, however, so take a pregnancy test if you're having symptoms of pregnancy.
These are called "Placebo".
It is a possibility that you are pregnant if your withdrawal bleed (not a period) doesn't start on your placebo pills. If concerned take a pregnancy test to confirm one way or the other.
Placebo is considered an alternative rockband.
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.)
