Will all pills of a packet give me protected sex life?

Hi I been on the pill 5 months . It is a packet of 21 tablets with a 7 day break . The packet starts 7 white pills followed by pink pills. The white pills aren't sugar pills, they contain hormones too, like the pink. I finished a packet and had my 7 day break. I am now onto my new packet, my 5th white pill taken today. I was wondering if I were to have sex (with a condom of course!) while on the white pills, am I still protected from pregnancy? Or is it that the white pills provide no protection? Thanks

They do provide protection and you need not worry on that.

I m on micro lite pill for protection. I forgot to take my pill on Friday morning so I skipped it and took Saturday s as normal. I only have 2 tablets left in the packet. Am I protected during sex? Also am I protected during my seven day break? Would you advise I begin my seven day break early as I only have two tablets left?

Hi, I have taken two strips of Microgynon 30 consecutively but towards the end of the second strip I had some brown discharge . Then a few days before my period was due there was some spotting; then my period came but it only lasted two days instead of five. I m concerned because I continued to have sex (with the pill as the only form of contraception ) because I was sure that I was protected because the pills were taken correctly. Is it normal to have a short period after two pill packets? Thank you.

Had protected sex, now need to pee a lot, what is it? I am on the pill, have been for months now. I finished my period which was during the 7 day break and started my new packet and was 5 days into it. I had protected sex with my boyfriend. It was my first time. We did a bit of foreplay before and I gave him an oral before he put the condom on. It has been 2 days since we had protected sex but today I noticed that I constantly need to pee and sometimes when i wipe there is a tiny spot of what appears to be blood. What is this? AM I pregnant? Have I caught something? I can not tell my parents I had sex even though I am of age. I am really stressed about this. Please help! = (

Hi, I am currently taking Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets for birth control and I was wondering if I could be on diet pills at the same time without having the pill be less effective. If this is possible to have the same effectiveness with my birth control then what diet pill should I take? I am 22 an would like to loose twenty or so pounds.

I have been on Levora 28 tablets for 20 yrs. I recently switched to Chateal because of my insurance situation. Both are Levonorestrel & Ethinyl Estradiol Tablets. Do I need extra protection during the first week or month of switching? Do I need to worry about pregnancy during this time?
