I have been taking Gianvi for a few months now. The other day I started my period and I am not even to the white pills yet. I heard that if you skip the white pills and go straight to the pink, you wont have a period that month, is this true? Also, since I have already had my period a few days, would it be alright to do that??
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Consider taking the pills as directed. If you want to skip your periods while being on the pills, then take correct directions from your gynecologist. Also it will help to know if doing this can lead to any hormonal issues and breakthrough bleeding later in your cycle. Do not take self decisions when it comes to medications.
