I didn't know I was supposed to wait 7 days before starting a new 21 day pack of microgestin. For the past 3 months I have taken the 21 pack and have immediately started a new 21 day pack without waiting 7 days, what are the risks?

It's ok to do what you have done every now and then ... especially if you want to skip your period but it's not what is intended. Even though you have done this there is nothing for you to worry about. When you finish the pack you are on have a weeks break then start your new packet and take a tablet daily for 3 weeks and then stop for 7 days. You should get your period sometime during your week off.
