Yes you will still be protected during the placebo pills week as long you took your pills everyday at the same thorughout active pills. Be sure that you have been on Birth Control for at least 3 months before you attempt to do so.

What happens if you stop taking the birth control pill for 2 weeks?

How much of a gap do you leave with the pill?

With the 21 day pill, you leave a gap of 7 days. As long as you have been taking your pills as directed, you do not need additional contraception for the non pill-taking days.
