Evelyn Resh MPH,CNM(Certified Sexuality Counselor & Nurse-Midwife)answered(11/29/2012)Yes, this is absolutely safe to do and is commonly done when women can't manage a period or don't want to - like when they're traveling. In fact, this is so safe and desirable, that a specific pill was designed with this in mind. The pill is called Seasonique and has been available by prescription for about 5 years. Meanwhile, you can do this even without Seasonique by doing exactly what you're describing: simply skip the sugar pills and go on to the next pack.
