    Default Switching from mini pill to full pill

    Sorry if this is in the wrong section but after 18 months, I've just realised that I've been on the mini pill that whole time. I was wondering why I've been getting irregular spotting, bloating, etc and clearly this was why. I was also skipping the red pills so I could avoid a period all together.
    So now (sigh), I want to get onto the full combined pill. My question is, can I just go straight onto it? Or do I have to wait till I start spotting again?
    I also plan to skip the red pills when I start it because, lets face it, periods are annoying!

    When you go to your doctor to get a script for the new pill, they would be able to tell you when to start taking it.
