Is there any day of my cycle when I'm least likely to get pregnant?
It's pretty unlikely to get pregnant while on your period and you're most fertile when you're ovulating, which is typically around day 14 of your cycle. Given the fact that sperm can survive inside the vagina for five days you highly likely to become pregnant up to five days before and one day after you ovulate. However experts still recommend sticking to a long-term birth control method if you're serious about preventing your pregnancy.

Is there anything wrong with starting a new birth control pill pack if I want to skip my period week?
Not at all women on the pill have been doing this for decades, and it's a completely safe way to postpone your period until you feel like getting it again, whether it's a week later or months later.
