I am 38 yrs old and been on pill since age 25.taking a break for 2 years. Is it dangerous to skip sugar pills and immediately follow active missing hormonal bleed. Also at my age how many eggs would i have left should i be considering having a baby or is it too late.

You should\ not skip the sugar pills too often as this can upset your cycle and give you too much oestrogen. If you do it occasionally, it is fine. Fertility decreases from the age of 35, but really only becomes a problem after 40.
