Re: continually using bc to "skip" period

It's fine to do this, but some women spot or have bleeding like a period despite trying to skip. Other then this "risk", however, it's fine, and for many women it works wonderfully.

One thing to consider: are you on a triphasic or monophasic pill? With triphasic pills the amount of hormones in the pills varies by week, whereas with monophasic the amount of hormones is constant for all twenty-one pills. Many women have trouble skipping using triphasic pills because of the changes in amount of hormone throughout the pill cycle.
