... they were called the sugar pills) :) Does that mean the brown pills don't contain any hormones? Do my boyfriend and I need to use another form of protection during the week when I take the brown pills (the 4th week)?
The brown pills don't contain any hormones. They're also called placebo pills. The 7 day break from hormones is to trigger your body into having monthly bleeding that mimics a period. You are still protected from pregnancy while taking the sugar pills as long as you have taken all the active pills correctly and consistently. If you do not wish to have a period at all, you can throw away the sugar pills and start a whole new pack. Although you may experience very light, irregular spotting. It's totally up to you!
