Question Skipping periods on trivora/trilevlen?

Is anyone else here on trivora or trilevlen? I would like to do the whole four-periods-a-year thing by skipping the sugar pills and going straight into the next pack. If you're on either, have you tried this, and if so, have you had any problems? Thank you.

Im not sure if this is a monophasic or triphasic pill. I am pretty sure it is triphasic meaning it has 3 diff levels of hormone each week. It is hard to skip periods on triphasic pills because your hormone is not the same each week. I am on a triphasic pill and tried to skip, I got my period for 10 straight days. You should also talk to your doctor before doing this. Take care!

This is a triphasic pill, so it will be VERY difficult for you to skip periods without a lot of spotting.

If you are interested in skipping periods you should talk to your doctor and switch to a momphasic pill.

Thanks so much for all your help!

I'll definitely talk to my doctor about getting on the nonphasic pills. I haven't had a period yet, but I won't do it again on the triphasic pills because of what was mentioned and what I've read elsewhere. (And I'll use extra protection for awhile, just to make sure.)

I'm in the middle of the second week and haven't had any problems so far - no spotting/bleeding, no pains, etc. Curious - am I a freak case?
