What if you dont take the plcebo pills?

The cycle is three weeks of hormones, one week of no hormones, as you pretty much figured out by the fact that of the 28 pills in the pack, seven of them are placebos. When BC pills first came out, they used to only give you the 21 hormone pills. You were supposed to take the pills for 21 days, then not take pills for seven days before starting hormones again. The problem with that is people would start taking the pills again at nine days or eleven days or whatever, and a lot of women got pregnant. "How could this happen? These things are supposed to keep you from getting pregnant!" And they do, if you keep to the schedule. Now, they give you 21 days of hormones and seven placebos, and you get to take one pill every day. If you get into the habit of always taking a pill every day, you won't mess up the cycle. So as to your answer: if you can remember to start taking the hormone pills again after seven days, you don't need to take the placebos. Then again, they won't hurt you if you take them.
