Our expert says:
You have your periods because you take the hormone -free pills for one week. This changes the levels of hormones in your body and induces a period. Women fall pregnant usually if they miss a Pill or if it is not absorbed due to vomiting or medications which interfere with it. In these circumstances, a breakthrough ovulation can occur.
Anon in incorrect in saying that you ovulate on the Pill. The mini-pill may allow this, but Minerva is not a progestogen only Pill.
