I'v read about not taking the 7 inactive (white pills in the red section) and starting a new packet to skip your period for that month. I have two questions, does this include skipping the two white pills before the red section or should I take them as normal then go onto the other packet to skip a period? And by skipping a period for a month, next month is it heavier? I've only been on levlen one month, is this safe to do in my second month? It's my boyfriend and I's anniversary when my period is due to start in the second month, this is why I'm wondering.
You take all pills except the 7 inactive pills. It will not hurt to do this. This early on it may not work, but its worth a try if its important to you. When you're on the birth control pill, it causes your uterine lining to not be so heavy, so there is less to "bleed". It won't build up scads of stuff for your next period. They are studying now, they think there is no reason that we have to have a period at all when on birth control.
