I started lutera the day I was supposed to start my period. I didn't have any bleeding until one day that I missed a pill. The day I missed was a little less than a week before my reminder pills. I have continued to take the pills as regular. I continued to spot until my reminder pills started and now am having my period. How long should my period last? (the seven days I'm on the reminder pills?) And is it safe to have sex while on the reminder pill?
It may or may not last the whole week. It is hard to say as everyone is a bit different. Usually periods on the Pill will be lighter and shorter in duration than they were without the Pill but not always. I know that doesnt give you much of an answer. If you had not missed any Pills it would be safe for you to have sex without an additional barrier method but since you missed a Pill you need to use back up for at least a week after the missed Pill. If it has been over a week since you missed you should be protected against pregnancy again. Remember that BCP's do not protect you against STDs and to protect yourself you should still use a barrier like a condom if you are unsure of your partners sexual history.
