Yes, but . . . : You could stop them anytime, but is best to stop pills at the end of a cycle. In other words, finish whatever pack you are on and just don't start a new pack. Usually you'll have some sort of a period start within a few days of stopping. Stopping at the end of a pack will avoid any change in your menstrual cycle.
