Do you mean not take any pills for that time period and start your new pack when you normally would, or jump straight from one pack of BC to another without taking the placebo (white) pills?

I never got PMS symptoms while on the pill.  You might have some spotting going from the active pills in one pack to another but there shouldn’t be any PMS symptoms.

No, you shouldn’t really experience anything PMS related if you skip the placebo pills and go right into your next pack.  I think at most I would have a day where I was a little moodier than usual, but I never experienced bloating or the like.  I have heard of a few people who do spot a little, but that did not happen to me.  I think as long as you take them at your usual time each day, you should be good to go!

I think it depends.  Each person reacts differently unfortunately, so there’s not really a way to know until you try.  When I used to take Yaz, I would still get random mood swings when I would skip the placebos, my Fiance can attest to that!  There’s also still a chance of spotting too or any other PMS symptom, depends how your body decides to react.
