Best Answer

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 have taken birth control for 3 weeks and stop for 1 week to have your period can you have unprotected sex during this time?

answerIf you are on a pill such as OrthoTricyclen, you are given a week of 'dummy' pills which contain no hormones. This allows your body to have a period. If you have unprotected sex during this time you should be protected from pregnancy just as any other time of the month. HOWEVER you should NEVER have unprotected sex unless you are in a committed, monogamous relationship with someone whom you know definitely has a clean bill of health. No hormonal birth control protects you from diseases such as AIDS and herpes, only barrier methods such as condoms will do that. And please, still be careful!
