    Yes you can ..... well I could with mine anyway. The wee booklet thing tells you all about it cos it's what you have to do if you miss one anyway. Wouldn't advise that you do it too often though, I vaguely remember reading something warning against that.

    Hi Hippy Chick! Yeah it's ok to take the pill continuously, apparently doctors originally thought women liked having periods (yeah right) - so encorporated the 7 day break! I used to take it all the time, and my gp said it was fine! She obviously didn't like periods either.

    yeah, you can take it without a break, but it doesnt mean that you wont get a period, it may well stop you from having a period but dont rely on it. i usually still come on <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
