Taking hormonal treatment continuously as prescribed by your health care provider is not dangerous. While some women have spotting while on continuous birth control pills, many women do not have any menstrual bleeding. The lining of the uterus doesn’t build up so there is no need for a monthly period.

- I’m on the pill and I usually take it continuously so I don’t get a period. But this month I was going to take the placebo pills to have a period. What I’m wondering is: When do I start the hormone pills again? Right after my period ends even if there are placebo pills left? And how long after starting a new pack after my period can I have sex safely without a condom?
