What are the risks of pregnancy when having sex on your period?

I forgot to mention there was no condom used, but I have been on the Ortho Evra Birth Control patch for about 7 months now. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated [Smile]

When you're using hormonal birth control and using it correctly, the risk of pregnancy is the same at all times: low.

Oh really? I did not now that at all. Thank you for informing me on that. I greatly appreciate it. I just wanted to take the time to all who have helped me through this site. Your time spent in talking to me has been so helpful. I do have another question, what would be considered using hormonal birth control incorrectly?

Incorrently using hormonal birth control would be using it in a manner other than directed. If you're not sure you are using it as directed, you can re-read the patient information sheet that comes with your patches, or you can ask your pharmacist or doctor.

I believe I am using it correctly. The only thing I can think of is I normally put my patch on on Sundays at 10:00pm, but there are times were I put it on about 15 to 30 minutes later. One time I put it on an hour late, but thats all I can think of.
