Triphasil
Good Morning. I am on triphasil and on Saturday I am suppose to start with the red pills. I would like so skip those pills and delay my period. Is this safe? I heard that I should then start with the new pack. Now where do I start? Do I continue on the new pack on the Saturday where the brown pills start? And am I still protected while skipping these pills?

You can skip the red pills and then carry on with the next pill after the red ones. This is safe but you may get breakthrough bleeding as Triphasil has differnt amounts of hormone in each set of pills.
