Want to skip next period. I'm on sprintec. Will skipping placebo week & starting a new pack skip my period? What are chances of breakthrough bleeding

Skipping periods. If you skip all the placebo pills and continue taking hormonal pills from the next pack you should not get a period. There could be breakthrough bleeding, but usually that happens after more than 5-6 weeks of continuous use, some women do not have any breakthrough bleeding for months at a time and skip all their placebo pills - as a treatment for heavy periods, painful periods or endometriosis.
