So I started birth control about a 3 or 4 weeks ago I'm not sure and I was on my 5th day of my period then I got my period about weeks later again. I was confused by this and my friend told me I should keep taking the regular active pills so that the birth control would actually work. I've been taking them on my period now and missed about 2 days so I took two pills the next day when I missed them. But I've had my period for about 11 days now, still light bleeding and I'm very confused as to what I'm supposed to do. Am I not supposed to be taking the pills during my period? Is this when I'm supposed to take the sugar pills? Also I've been having sex on my period and my boyfriend has cum inside me many times am I not protected?
