I decided to skip my period using the pill. Instead of starting the fourth week of placebo pills on Sunday, December 13th, I started a whole new package of pills. All was well until about a week and a half later, on December 24th. That's when I started getting breakthrough bleeding. It hasn't stopped since then. This past Sunday, January 3rd, I started taking the placebo pills from the package I started on Dec. 13th.
Here's my question: By the time I start a new package of pills next Sunday (Jan. 10th) will this bleeding have stopped?
I read that because Tri Cyclen Lo is a triphasic pill, taking it continuously will cause bleeding and after taking the week of placebo pills and starting a new package of active ones will get everything back to normal. Is this right?
