when i was in high school i took yasmin and would occasionally skip my periods by just going to a new pack. i never had any problems doing so. for the last 5 months i have been on a new birth control named mononessa and this is the first time i've tried skipping my period on this pill. 5 days into the new pack i started to lightly bleed. this has never happened before when i tried skipping my period. can i not skip my period on this pill? should i continue taking the pack or switch back to the sugar pills you take when you are on your period?
