Is it ok to skip the inactive pills and jus start a new pack?
You do not have to take the inactive pills. They are there to keep you taking a pill every day, and to point out when to start the next pack. You do have to wait a week from the last active pill in one pack, to the first pill in the next pack.
It is best to ask your prescriber. they used to say it was ok to do this a few times a year for special occasions like going on vacation but it is not good to do it all the time and it doesnt guarantee that you wont get your period. You may get breakthrough bleeding anyway.
