I spoke to my OB/GYN about this but just wanted a second opinion. I am 20 years old have been on microgestin fe 1/20 since August of 2015 and have had no problems on it until recently. This is my fourth month now where I have gotten my period early. I have it during the third week instead of during the placebo pills. And now, I'm only two and a half weeks through my pack and am bleeding. It lasts the normal length, around five days, but is lighter than usual.
Am I still protected from pregnancy if I do not have my period during the placebo week each month?
