When I was on regular bc pills I never bothered to take the last week of sugar pills and just started the next pack after a week of no pills. I've been skipping the last week of these pills too but a friend just told me they actually had hormones
Hi Mimi, your friend was correct, they do and you need to take them: https://www.drugs.com/pro/seasonique.html
There is no substitute to reading the instructions.
Yes there are hormones in the peach pills, that’s why seasonique is different from seasonale where the 13th week are just plecebos. I don’t think there’s harm to skipping them but there are benefits to taking the low hormone peach pills- for me it helps a lot to prevent depression during my periods.
