Hi Anon

Thanks for your post!

Yes, these Pill free weeks still mean you are protected and you do not have to use another form of birth control. As long as you take your 21 day pack each day, around the same time - you are protected for the 7 days that you're not taking the active pills.

I hope this helps!
