Patient :I am on the contraception pill and I take it at the same time every morning. Just a question though, I also take the sugar pill for the 5 days Monday until Friday. I am wondering if I want to only take it for the 3 which will be Monday to Wednesday would that be less effective for birth control since I had been taking all the pills correctly since I first started on the contraceptive pill? Please let me know as it's uncomfortable for me to be getting bleeding for the 5 days as 3 would be better.
