You can skip the inactive pills and carry on with the active pills in the next pack. It is safe, but does not always work as Triphasil has different doses of pills.

Best wishes

Hi. I spoke to my pharmacist about that yesterday. She said that it isn' t harmful as your body doesn' t ovulate in anycase when you' re on the pill. Just take your pill packet to a pharmacist and they will show you which ones to skip. I was also really worried as to how it will affect my body, and she said it won' t have any affect, just don' t do it 2 months in a row, and not more that twice a hear.
