I have googled but can't find the answer to this...
How long is it safe to take back to back packs for?

same as any other combined pill ?

I used to take Dianette - but found that if i ran two packs together i would have a bleed before the endof the second pack anyway.But that could be because I was not the best at daily pill taking.

My gynecologist said I could take them continuously with no break ever - in theory (I have endometriosis so was trying to avoid periods). In practice I found that my body would let me know if I needed a break as I would start to spot.
