    As long as she takes them. They are a daily med with one week break for a period. Unless she wants to skip a period and then she keeps taking them instead of the break.

    Really? You've never heard of being on your period or "that time of the month?" Females of many species bleed a mentrual flow each month. That is the egg that has not been fertilized by the male sperm. (You do know how sex works, right?)

    Sorry I misstated myself. I have heard of a period, but I don't know how it works.

    Basically what I'm asking is once a girl is on the pill how long will the pill prevent pregnancy?

    Thank you.

    I'll try to explain myself. I have heard of the term women or girls on their period, but I'm not a women so I don't know, how a period works.
