A member asked:

On sprintec birth control. is it ok to only take 4 or 5 of the inactive "sugar" pills and start a new pack to shorten my period?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Yes: Shortening the # of days of placebo makes scientific sense, and may result in fewer days of bleeding, and even possibly better efficacy. The traditional 21 days of hormones followed by 7 days of placebos is arbitrary, and not written in stone.
