Can I start a new pack of the Ortho Tri-cyclen Lo birth control pill the week that I should be taking the placebos to effectively skip my period for that month? Will that throw off my hormones? Am I at a greater risk for pregnancy during that month to come? What are the long-term effects if I continue skipping straight to a new pack whenever the placebo week comes along?
The Ortho Try-cyclen is made for time off in your pack. To keep yourself regular you need to have that time off. If you are wondering about sex. You can have sex while on your period. Talk to your doctor or to the pharmacy and make sure you know what is needed to keep yourself healthy.
