My period lasts seven days. There's only seven inactive pill so therefore if my period don't start right after the last active pill (21st pill) the days i have left for my period would be shorter. I don't like the fact that i can't have a complete period so can i let my period finish completely before i start on the new pack even if the inactive pills are finished? Would i stand a chance of getting pregnant if i do that? Also can i have sex when taking the inactive pills while waiting for my period to start? Please this info would be greatly appreciated.
you should go back to your gyn for re-evaluation on your birth control. the one you're taking is a very low dose, and so yes, it is possible for you to become pregnant during the days before you start a new pack. it sounds like you'd benefit greatly from either a different birth control pill or method. i would get with your gyn right away, together you can come up with what will best fit your needs without causing you problems or fears of unwanted pregnancy
