IS it safe to skip the inactive pills when on birth control?
Just skipping the green pills is safe as they are just lactose and are there to keep your routine of taking them every day. It may not be safe to only take the blue pills consistently. I know it is not recommended. Consult with your doctor before just starting the blue pills in case it effects your fertility in the future or has other consequences. Your doctor may also be able to suggest some other forms of contraception such as an implant that may suit your needs better. ******If it is a tricylclic pill then missing out on pills will make you more susceptible to pregnancy as tricyclic forms of the pill are graduated to mimic the natural pattern of a woman’s cycle.
