... active pills waiting for your period to start and then waiting till your period to end to being taking active pills once again, if you have already been on Desogen for many months?
As long as you have taken the pills as instructed you do not need to use backup contraception.
After finishing the 21 active tablets you have a 7 day break (or 7 days of taking sugar / inactive pills). You start the new packet of active pills after 7 days regardless of whether your period has started or stopped.
If you are unsure that have followed the correct instructions talk with your doctor or pharmacist.
