faqs

is there only 1 pill i can use to skip my periods?

No, you can use any combined (estrogen and progesterone) birth control pill to skip periods.

It’s easier with monophasic (watch this video to learn about monophasic vs. triphasic). If the pack has 4 weeks of medications, just skip the last week of pills (which are the sugar “placebo” pills) and go right into the next pack.

Always, take active pills. If the pack has 3 weeks of pills, take all the pills and go right into the next pack.

can i skip my periods using the patch?

No, because the estrogen builds up and poses a clotting risk (risk of a blood clot in lungs, brain, etc).
