I have two questions:
1st) I was reading on the internet and I read a question that I never thought of. If you are on birth control pills, and you are on your "sugar" pills, and you get your period the first day and finish on the 3rd day, do you still wait until the Sunday to start the next pack, or do you start right after your period ends? And if the answer is wait until Sunday, can you still have sex even though you are taking a real pill yet?
2nd) Technically you don't have to take the sugar pills right??

- 1. Yes- you still wait until Sunday to start the next pack..regardless of when your period ends. The pill is still effective after your period ends until your next pack starts (but of course- never 100%).
2. You don't need to take the 'sugar' pills- they are simply reminder pills and contain non-active ingredients.
I don't bother taking them personally, little bit of a break.#1; Sat, 15 Dec 2007 15:09:00 GMT
