Placebo pills...

So, this may be a silly question, but they are called placebo pills for a reason right? They're fake, sugar pills right? no hormones? So you have like 5-7 of these in a pack, and for as many days you're just taking a sugar pill, right?

If they do have hormones, then no reason to continue reading, lol...BUT if they ARE sugar pills, then why is it such a BIG DEAL if you miss a regular pill by a couple of hours? Especially since you miss almost a week with placebos...I mean, if a few hours could cause you to spontaneously ovulate, then certainly a five day break could...not only that, but most women don't have heavy or five day long periods when on the pill, so they could be having tons and tons of sex on their placebo time...what keeps them from getting pregnant on the placebo pills, when being an hour late could screw everything over?

So I'm just a little confused as to how this whole placebo thing makes sense when missing a pill is EPICALLY BAD...again, sorry if it's silly or I'm overthinking it, I overthink things A LOT, lol >_
