I have been on the pill for as long as i can remember and tend to skip taking the sugar tablets so i dont have my period.. I had unprotected sex 3days ago and now i have break through bleeding as if i am going to start my period? Could i be pregnant?
Kaismama is correct. there is a reason those sugar pills are in the pack. Your body needs that break from the hormones. You put yourself at a much greater risk for complications by skipping your period every month. It is only OK to skip a period a few times a year (3-4 times a year max) for special occasions like vacation trips etc. If you dont want to take the sugar pills, you dont have to actually swallow them, you just have to keep track so you know when to start a new pack. Supressing your period like this every month is not good for your body and your body is trying to normalize. You are not pregnant as long as you take a pill each day. When you take the sugar pills (or skip them but take nothing the last week in your cycle when you should be on the inactive pills) you are still protected from pregnancy because you will not ovulate while on the pill when you take it properly. The only reason to use condoms, after the initial waiting period when you first start the pill, is to protect against STDs. If you are in a commited monogamous relationship and are sure of your partners sexual history you dont have to use condoms after the initial waiting period unless you miss pills then you need to use back up because you are at risk for ovulating because of missed active pills. Sugar pills were just designed to get women used to taking a pill each day and allowing a break from hormones. They also help you to know when you need to start the next pack. Keep taking your pill as they come in the pack and when the week comes for the inactives, you need to allow your body that break and have your period.
