Call you doctor’s office and ask.  You might be able to take 3 packs of active pills back to back and skip 2 periods.

keep taking it and continue straight into a third pack. Then youll miss to cycles.

yeah, I’d call for this one – because you have triphasic pills, it might be a bit more difficult to coordinate. I’ve heard a lot of women still get spotting when they start a new triphasic pack because the hormone level is dropping. I would guess though, that they might just have you stop now.

@ThreeMeers:  I agree with this. My doctor has said that you can do this a couple of months in a row without any problem. My friends have also been told the same thing.

For the future – look into Seasonale. It’s a BC that you take continously for 3 months and then have a 1 week period (hence the name, one period per season). I’ve been on it for a year and love it!

Seasonale is great, but it can really mess with your emotions.  It did with me!  I was on it for a year and couldn’t get used to it.  I was a mess and cried over EVERYTHING, which was unfortunate because having four periods a year was fantastic!

@discodance:  Seasonale is actually the first BC I feel like a normal person on! It’s different for everyone. 🙂

@missbeachbum:  I gained 20 pounds in a month on Seasonale (changing nothing else). I just switched back to the pill I was on before it and dropped 20 pounds in a month (also changing nothing). While it didn’t particularly mess with me any other way, it definitely made a huge change to my body!

@MissBoPeep:  Lucky duck!  I wish it hadn’t messed with mine so much!
