Skipping red pills on triphasil to skip period
Is it ok to skip the inactive pills on triphasil and go straight onto the new pack, thus skipping ones period? I' ve heard this can be a problem in pills such as triphasil, as not all of the pills have equal hormones. Thanks

You are right that this does not always work with Triphasil. SOme women have breakthrough spotting.
