Any thoughts?

@Dr_Paula
Hello, my question is:
I’m on the contraceptive pill and it’s meant to be taken every day of the month. I only take it the day i have sex and for 5 days after, if i dont have sex then i dont take it every day like it says to. i lightly bleed most days regardless of when my period is due which I assume is due to me not taking the pill correctly? Is taking the pill irregularly effecting my health and will it make me infertile or have bad long term effects?

Hello @anon1

The pill will not give you contraception if taken in this way.

Many thanks
