Question for Betty.
I have been taking Aviane for three weeks now and had unprotected intercourse on the first day of taking inactive pills.  Am I protected?
Betty's Answer.
Oral contraceptive pill packs are protective against pregnancy, even during the inactive pill week.  You took Aviane for 3 weeks, which prevented ovulation, so during the inactive pills you are also protected against pregnancy.
