Skipping Periods
Hi doc,
Do I run any risk if I can skip periods for two months? By skipping the red pills of the triphasils?/
Please advice

It is fine to skip the placebo pills. As Triphasil is a triphasic pill, some women have breakthrough bleeding when they do this, but there should not be any other problems.
