I started birth control Microgestin Fe 1.5/30 in the middle of my natural menstrual cycle 5 months ago. I have consistently taken the pill and am not on other medications/supplements. I still get my period in the middle of the pill pack in alignment with my natural cycle and have only light spotting during the placebo week. I haven't had sex since I've started the pill but I will soon and I want to know if I am still protected against pregnancy or if it's possible that this pill is not protecting me and I should change prescriptions. If I am still protected against pregnancy, my plan was to skip the placebo week until my it lines up with my natural cycle.
