does not taking the inactive pills lessen the effectivenes of the pill ? would it be okay to just throw away the pill and wait those 7 days to start a new pack or start a new pack right away. also if i wanted to change the time i take my pill would that up my chances of getting pregnant ? kuz i wanted to make the time about 15 minutes later if that even makes a differenttt
so would it be better to throw away the pills and wait seven days to start the new pack or start a new pack right after the other?
Normally women need that seven days in between active pills to get their period. If you take the next pack right after (skipping that fourth week) you might end up with spotting during the next month. But if you're trying to skip your period, that's what you do. Besides spotting, it won't hurt you at all.
If you take a pill that says "fe" after the name, the inactive pills contain iron to offset the iron lost during your period. It might make you feel better to take them. Otherwise they are just reminders.
Personally, I need to take the inactive week or I forget when I need to start again. But I'm like that, so it's really up to you.
I forgot to take my inactive pills and started taking the next pack. I had my time of the month on the Active pill in the 1st week. I finish all the new pack and the 7 days off I started another pack I'm in the 1st week of the new pack and I didn't have my time of the month. Don't understand why.
