I am taking the Quasense- birth control pill. I am new to this form of birth control. The 7 day reminder pills- are they necessary to take; and aren't they just sugar pills? I just want to make sure that if I don't take the 7 day reminder pills- that is no big deal- right? I also want to make sure that if I decide to have sex on that 7 day stretch- do I need to be using another form of back up birth control? Thanks!!! Your advice is much appreciated.
