I need advice on how to take my HBC the next few weeks as I'm a bit of a HBC noob when it comes to anything other than normal, perfect usage. I'm currently in a long distance relationship and will get to see my man again in three weeks, however I'm a little unsure if we'll be protected at that time due to the fact that I started my pill this month about a week and a half after my period ended rather than immediately. I've heard that when you start mid cycle you may have already ovulated, thus you are unprotected even after a week of perfect use. Is this true? If it is I was wondering if I should finish this week, have a withdrawal bleed, and start a new pack/cycle.. I'm not exactly sure if this would even work correctly as a "cycle reset" but that's where you can help me. :) So what should I do? Continue my current pack and stack through my visit? Or finish this week, have a withdrawal bleed, and start a new one? I'd prefer not to resort to condoms as we aren't fond of them, but if I'm unprotected then I'd rather be safe than sorry. Thanks in advance!
