2 packs back-to-back always or just sometimes? watch

    • Thread Starter


    I'm on microgynon/rigevidon. I know it's perfectly fine to run two packs back-to-back sometimes, ie people say when they're on holiday etc.. but can I do this all the time - 2 packs, break, 2 packs, break, 2 packs etc. So I get my period once every 2 months.

    Is this ok? I've been doing that for a while now (few cycles), but am wondering if it's ok long-term.


    I remember reading somewhere that you can run up to three packs together before taking the break. Pretty sure the Rigevidon leaflet says it's fine too as long as you do take breaks, you should be able to do it as often as you want.

    Seems okay, I usually do 2 months pill, break, one month pill, break, then two months again. Yeah I've also heard that you can take 3 months back to back
    Go to your GP if that's possible
