No it does not, as long as you’ve taken all of your active pills correctly and account for any diarrhea or vomiting that may affect your protection! You are protected at all times (including your break week) as long as you’ve taken your active pills correctly. Also, birth control is known to lighten and even stop bleeding all together. However, you are still in the 3-6 month adjustment phase, which means you may experience irregular bleeding and more side effects for this time. You should read your pamphlet, as all of this is listed in there!
