I have PCOS so my periods are weird. I’ve been bleeding for a month now while taking active pills and I’m about to be on the placebo week of my pills. I feel like during the week of the placebo pills the bleeding will be stopped. Will I still be protected from pregnancy during the placebo week?
Usually you start bleeding a few days after starting the placebo pills. So it is highly unlikely your bleeding will stop then. It usually takes 3 months for your body to regulate on birth control pills. If this is longer than your first month & you are bleeding like this I’d check with your doc, this may not be the pill for you. You should be protected against pregnancy if you’re taking the pills correctly.
