In brief: Yes it happens

Because the estrogen has been lowered in our current pills, some women will skip a withdrawal period while taking the "fake" pills at the end of a pack (about 2% of the time).
Please do a pregnancy test before starting a new pack to confirm you're not pregnant (5% of women do get pregnant each year who use the pill). If its negative then you can proceed with your next package of pills.
