Just finished my last white pill on desogen birth control, and I have the green colored "sugar pills" left but I haven't started my cycle and I'm not sure if I should continue w/the same pack or move onto a new pack and leave the colored pills alone.
I agree with Kaismama. The pills are there to regulate your cycle as well as prevent pregnancy. For as long as I have been taking birth control pills (on and off for about 6 years), my period almost always comes on the Wednesday or Thursday after starting the sugar pills. Additionally, if you skip the sugar pills and immediately start on the next pill pack, you may not get a period at all, which is not healthy for your body if you are on birth control pills with which you are still supposed to get a period. I have never tried this, but I don't think it would be a good thing.
I hope this has helped!
