Question about BC pills

OK what exactly are the inactive pills. I know the active pills are with hormone and the inactive are without hormone, so what exactly is the inactive for?

  • It's a reminder so you won't forget. There basically a placebo, I never take them and haven't had any problems.

  • From what I remember, I think they're just so you keep taking a pill everyday so you don't forget. But I could be completely wrong. =)
