I have skipped my placebo pills of Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo and started a new pack Sunday. I am spotting today, Friday. My husband and I had sex earlier this week. Could I get pregnant? Or am I still protected? Also will I spot all month or just this first week? Thank for the hep in advance
You are protected even though you skipped the placebos going from last active of old pack to first active of the new pack. It is okay to do this a few times a year to try to avoid your period but it doesnt always work. You may spot here and there or you may have a period anyway. More than likely the spotting will be just this week. You may also have a heavier period your next period. No worries, just an inconvenience!
