I am on the combined pill Rigevidon. I was originally put on this pill to stop me coming on my period on holiday as well as to help with irregular periods. Since being on the pill I almost always have a period on my week break. I have recently being using the pill as a contraceptive as well. I have read that if taking the pill correctly you should be covered on your week break with regards to contraception. However, I have been told by multiple friends that the week after your 7-day break from the pill when you start a new pack you are not protected from getting pregnant in the first week. My question is whether or not you are covered in the first week of a fresh pack of pills after the week break? Is there any time during the month that you are not covered?
