Can I skip the inactive pills in my pack of birth control and go directly on to the new pack so that I dont get my period?

Yes, you can skip your inactive pills. Likewise, it’s also safe to continuously take another hormonal method of birth control, like Depo-Provera injections, the Mirena IUD, or the ring.
