If I skip the placebos in Ortho-Tricyclen, can I skip my period for a month by starting a new pack?

Someone else already asked this, i know, but you didn't exactly answer their question... I am not interested to know what's good for me or how important it is that I have my period as suggested while on this type of pill. This I've already been informed about . I just want to know if it's actually possible to skip your period by skipping the placebo and what possible side effects could occur from it?
You can skip the inactives and just start a new pack. I don't know of any side effects and you probably shouldn't do that every month with a tri phasal pill, but, it won't hurt to do it once and a while.
You will still ovulate. Now next month you will be telling that you are expecting. Congradulations. Plus if you do get in a family way there is a better chance you will have some problems and so will the child.
yes you can I do it all the time and have been for the past 2 years. People have their opinions about whether its good for you or not but my doctor said it was okay and I read up on it. You can do it
