I've been on birth control for almost 6 months now so I guess my body has not gotten on the pattern of having my period during the "placebo" pill week it still comes during the third active week pill. If I had unprotected sex during the last week of taking the placebo after I already had my period can I get pregnant? I also took one of the "placebo" pills atleast 8 hours late after having unprotected sex. I know that the birth control I take is Notrel 0.5/35 so it contains both hormones that protects but if this happened while on the inactive pills can I get pregnant? My situation is different because my period does not come on the fourth week like most it comes on the third week. Yes, I still take the active pills on the third week even though I'm on my period. Please help best you can...
