Re: skipping my period
You have already been on the pill several months, and it's a monophophasic pill, so hopefully you should be fine skipping. Since Alesse has less hormones then other pills (only 20mcg of estrogen) it's possible that you might have spotting or breakthrough bleeding like a period, but there is no way to tell without trying. Other then that, you should be fine. You won't be at increased risk for pregnancy by skipping, just possible increased risk for breakthrough bleeding.
