So your question is whether you are protected during the placebo week of your last cycle of the pill, correct?
Theoretically, yes, you should be. However, the problem is that sperm could wait around and if you happened to ovulate early in the next cycle when you are not on the pill, then you might have some level of risk.
I guess my advice would be that if pregnancy absolutely is not an option for you, start using your barrier method as soon as you are done with your active pills in this last cycle.
