I recently was on the 5 day Z-Pack and ended my dosage on the same day I started my placebo birth control pills. It has now been 2 weeks since I ended the Z-Pack, and I am through my week of placebos and am now 5 days into my first week of active birth control pills. Is it necessary to continue to use a backup method of birth control? If so, how much longer will I need a backup method to prevent pregnancy?

Thanks!
