I'm on seasonale, and I sex without a condom the monday after my placebo week. i know the patient info with the pill says that you do not need another form of birth control during your period week, but i am still a tiny bit worried. how could that work? because my period only lasts 4 days, and that left me with three days of nothing. i did take my pill the sunday and monday at the same time i always do, so how much of a risk of being pregnant do i have, if i am using the pill correctly?

I am especially anxious, because i will have to wait three months before my period. when would the earliest i could take a pregnancy test be, if i am at risk?

As long as you take the pill correctly, you have no risk of pregnancy. Hormonal birth control is designed to protect you for your ENTIRE placebo week, it has nothing to do with the length of your withdrawl bleed (that's your "period" on the pill).

If you're still worried, there's certainly no reason to nOT take a pregnancy test, and a test will be accurate as early as 10-14 days after your last pregnancy risk.

But again, Seasonale is over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy (ALL the time you're taking it correctly, placebo week and all), so there's really no reason you would need to worry. [Smile]
