Is a Apri a monophasic pill? As in it has the same amount of strogen in each pill and it is safe to skip the sugar pills in each pack and move on to the next one??? I am just wondering because i have read u can skip the sugar pills occasionaly is if the pill is monophasic.
Yes, Apri is a monophasic pill i.e. all the active pills contain the same amount of progestin and estrogen (contains 0.15 mg desogestrel and 0.03 mg ethinyl estradiol).
You can skip the sugar pills occasionally to avoid getting a period. However, you should take the sugar pills every three months to have a period once every three months at least.
