I've been on the pill junel fe 1.5/30 for 10 months now. And yes in the pack there are 3 rows of active pills and then a fourth week is placebo for my period
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Josh, Doctor replied 6 months ago

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

Well, The hormones in the pill thicken cervical mucus and prevent a woman’s ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulation).

It is very safe . The pill is one of the most effective means of preventing pregnancy.

The failure rate is between 1-8% per year.

Pill packages have "active" pills (with hormones) and placebo pills (no hormones).

Yes, Your menstrual period should occur during the placebo pills due to lack of hormones.

You are pretty safe, and not pregnancy.

Please be relaxed. It is normal to have periods while on placebo pills.

You should not panic at all. You would not get pregnancy.

Hope this helped

No need to get panic. You are completely safe.

God bless you and take care.
