I have PCOS and haven' t had my period in 4 months. I was wondering if I started taking a contraceptive pill starting with the ' active'  pills in stead of starting with the placebo pills, will I then get my period by the time I reached the placebo pills, or is this not possible?

Hi Lily
Yes this should work and it won't cause any harm if you start with the active pills.
