    Hi, I was wondering if someone could give me some advice.
    I've been on microgynon 30 for about a month now and have gotten through one and a half packets with out taking the 7day break after 21 pills as I wasn't aware of this. After realising this yesterday I started the 7 day break, should I carry this on and wait for my period? also I had unprotected sex about two weeks ago so will I still be protected!!?!?

    I'm on this pill. Not taking the seven day break is fine as long as you continue the next pack fully. I suggest continuing with your pack, including the one you missed yesterday, for the rest of the pack then take your break. However I would suggest using other forms of contraception in the next 7 days just to be sure. As for having unprotected sex two weeks ago, you should be okay as long as you were taking the pill correctly ever day. Hope this helps

    Yes, you were protected then.

    It's up to you. If you have a break now, you will probably have a withdrawal bleed (but still be protected). However you should take a whole pack from now on. If you just treat it as a missed pill - see the instructions! - you'll just have skipped the break.
