  • You can skip them. However, it is not guaranteed 100%. Some women still have breakthru bleeding. Try it, that's all you can do.

  • Your period should normally start within a couple of days of taking the sugar pills, not two weeks.
    The pills you don't take are the sugar pills if there are any.
    The idea is you continue taking the hormone pills without a break.
    It is not 100% guaranteed, you could still have spotting.
