    Hi. I have taken 2 packs of my pill back to back (lucette). Is it still ok to have a 7 day break or does it have to be a shorter break?

    It's supposed to be a 7 day break.

    Ok onky because I read somewhere you should take a shorter break if you take the pills back to back but it didn't say why

    No, you should still have a 7 day break.

    If you really, really can't have a 7 day break for whatever reason then you can have a shorter break, but this will increase your chances of breakthrough bleeding (ie bleeding when you're not on your break).

    You must not have a longer break unless you realise you're not protected and use additional contraception.
