i wanted to ask a question that maybe sounds stupid.. i dont know. i wanted to ask if my girlfriend could get pregnant if we have sex 1 day before her period, we will meet each other soon this month (long distance relationship). she takes the pills everyday at the SAME time. theres also a week that she doesnt have to take it, and when that week ends. she takes a new pack with pills. i'm just really worried if something could happen.. im literally in my head with this all the time, if something will happen. The pills she uses is called Maxim. (if that info could help)
I haven't heard of that pill, but many of the same have 20 different names. As long as she taking the pill daily & at the same time birth control pills are 99% effective, it doesn't matter if you have sex while she's on the inactive pills. Most bc pills stop you front ovulating. But when I was on the pill my boyfriend also used a condom. We are both too paranoid !
