    I am on lizinna (pill) and 8 days ago i finished my last pack, to have my 7 day break but a day after i stopped my pack (so i had one pill free day) i started another pack so i wouldnt come on my period as i am going travelling, would i still be protected?

    you probably won't get your period, I don't think it would affect that, but contraceptive wise I've heard of people missing one and getting pregnant, so I would just assume you're not. Have you tried checking the box/leaflet that came with it in case that has anything?

    Yes, you'll still be protected. The problem would be if you had a 'longer than seven days' gap, not a shorter one.

    You might or might not get some bleeding.
