    Right so, you know most pills you take for 21 days and have a 7 day gap.
    Well i know my friend said she sometimes misses the gap and starts a new packet straight away so she doesn't have a period.
    So i did this in Feb, i took another packet without a 7 day break, i didn't do this in March, i had a break and had a Period.
    Will it be okay to not have a 7 day break in April so i don't have to be on my period and carry straight onto the next pack.

    I'm just wondering if anyone else does this, because its just not convenient for the time to be on your period.. but does it matter if you do this?

    My ex girlfriend used to do this and it's fine, apart from the side effect of hormonal build up potentially making you a little more prone to mood swings, and again a potentially heavier period when you DO have your break.

    I've done it a few times but I'd be slow to do it a few months in a row because it can't be great, the gap is there for a reason

    Sometimes you get your period early at the end of the second pack which is a bit annoying but generally fine.

    I wondered why i came on a day earlier into the second pack.

    Yeah, it's nothing to worry about. Just a bit irritating really. It's why I don't usually run packs together.

    well its strange because i always thought being on the pill, you'd be on at the same time each month and i'm not and it happened even before i missed a break..

    Depends on how long you've been on it/what you're on. If you're not happy go and talk to your doctor about it.
