    I was on the pill for 5 years straight and only skipped it twice.
    I believe we're meant to have AF and stopping it is not healthy for our bodies.

    Yes, I take 3 packets straight, then go off the pill for a week to have a period. So in other words, I take the pill every day for 63 days, then stop for 7 days to trigger a period.

    It has been recommended by my GP/Gyno to take it this way as I have endo. I've been taking it this way for a good few years now.

    Haha yes me too, "back in the day". My GP said it was fine to have 3 months in a row "skipped".

    I skip my period all the time on the pill, I've never had any problems. I usually take 4 packets worth then have a period. Was recommended by my doctor years ago as when I have my period I get lots of cysts.

    Yes I do. I skip about 3-4 months at a time. I have been doing this for the last few years. Once I get over 3 months I have a slight bit of spotting (tmi) and then I go onto the sugar pills and have a period. I am on Microgyenan(sp?) 50 though.
