Default Birth Control Question.

Google is failing me, so I'm hoping someone here may be of help.

I'm on the pill for the first time in a loooong time (was on it in middle school to regulate my period), and from my understanding (read: googling) you can still bump uglies during the sugar pills because you aren't fertile during that time.

So, if my period doesn't start by the first sugar pill, does that mean I am unprotected/more at risk of becoming pregnant if I do the dirty? Sometimes it doesn't come until half way through the sugar pills, so should I be obstaining during that time?

The depo shot was WAY easier than this

As long as it's not the first pack since being on it, you'd be fine

I am pretty sure you can... as long as you keep up taking the pills all the other days. My understanding was as long as you are regular with taking the pills every night you can "do it" every day.... I never even took the sugar pills...lol but then again, I was horrible at taking pills every night, still am.


.... yeah depo is way easier.. I need to start weening off it..lol

I should add, even with that first pack you technically SHOULD be fine, but I tend to take the paranoid route

I'm pretty sure you're safe, but I'm paranoid, so I'd use a condom or another back-up BC just in case.

No, you're totally fine, even if you're not bleeding at the time. When I was on the pill I never started my period until 2-3 days after I started the blanks.

The Pill generally prevents you from ovulating at all, so you are okay. I usually don't start until my 4th day through the sugar pills, and I've been taking it for years now. As long as you are keeping up, taking it at the same time every day, so on, you're fine.

I should mention, because I'm not sure if it was really made clear, you should be using protection the entire first month/first pack....especially if you didn't start the pack while you were on your period.

Thanks guuuuys. Yeah, I've been on the pill for like 4 months now, never missed a pill. All I have to say about that is thank dog for phone alarms, or else I would NEVER remember.

My phone alarm would be set, it would go off, and I'd be all "WHY ARE YOU GOING OFF?" and ignore it XD
