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.

Is a second method of birth control such as condoms necessary while on my period or the white placebo pills if taking birth control?

It depends , reading below you will find your answer.How long have you been taking your birth control pills? If you have only been on birth control for less than 2 months, you may still be at risk of pregnancy while having unprotected intercourse during the week of the placebo pills.Do you properly take your birth control? If you properly take your birth control ;meaning that you take the pills every day at the same time each day, you are 99.9% protected from pregnancy. If you do not properly take the pills as directed you may increase your chances of becoming pregnant.Do you have spotting or breakthrough bleeding? If you do experience spotting or breakthrough bleeding, this can mean that you need a different dosage, typically a higher strength of birth control pills. This also means that the dosage you are currently are taking is not effective enough to prevent you from pregnancy. If you have experienced spotting or breakthrough bleeding for more than 3 months, you should see your physician to get the correct pills for you.Have you taken medication, such as antibiotics?If you have been taking antibiotics such as penicillin the effectiveness of your birth control will decrease. This also means that it would not be safe to have unprotected intercourse.If you have been taking birth control for more than 2 months, have properly been taking your birth control, have not experienced spotting or breakthrough bleeding as side effects and have not been taking antibiotics, you do not necessarily have to use a back up method, because you will still be protected from pregnancy during your placebo week.

Do placebo pills prolong your period?

Placebo pills have no effect on your period at all. A placebo itself is nothing more then a sugar pill, it contains absolutely NO medication of any kind. In a birth control pack the placebo pills are used strictly to keep you in the routine of taking the pill everyday.AnswerNo. Placebo pills have no effect on your cycle at all - they are simply a reminder to you to keep taking a pill at the same time every day. The bleeding you have while on BCP is actually not a period. It is withdrawal bleeding in response to your hormone levels dropping while you are not taking active BCP.You can take the inactive pills or skip them completely, as long as you remember to start using your active pills again at the end of the week.The way women use BCP to skip a period that is coming at an inconvenient time is to toss out the inactive pills and start using the new packet of active pills without skipping a day. This with your doctors or health care provider's OK.


How do you know if you received a placebo medication?

Although it is hard to tell exactly if you are given a placebo or not, here are some ways that may help: Placebo medications usually will not produce side effects. If you are experiencing no side effects while an active medication probably would produce side effects, then you may have received a placebo. If the desired effects are not occurring, then you may have received a placebo.
