I heard from a friend that you can skip your period if you skip the white pills and go straight to the blue pills, and then you can decide when you have your period( every three months or so). Im on sprintec and I usually have my period every month from the white pills. So I decided to skip the white pills and go straight to the blue but I have had my period for over 5 days now. Why is that? Is my body in a cycle and it knows when I usually have my period? I've been taking the blue pills at the same time every night.
