By that time you are often already back on the active pills when you are using one of these "24-4" pills. ...Read more

You can keep doing this indefinitely, it's called a continuous regimen; you may some irregular spotting in the future though, in which case, just switch to the 4th week sugar pills to have a period. ...Read more
