Can you skip the sugar pills on ortho tri cyclen lo?

Yes, you can skip the sugar pills on Tricyclen Lo if you like. Usually the triphasic pills -- the ones with three colors of active pills denoting three levels of hormones -- aren't the ideal ones to use to skip periods; you may be more likely to have unscheduled bleeding than if you used a different pill. If you have that problem, and want to skip often, consider calling your health care provider to discuss a possible pill change to a monophasic pill.

What do you do if you missed the last pill before the sugar pills?
