Can I start my period week early on bc pills?

Hello all! Ive been on monolynah bc pills for about 6 months, and have gone the last few months skipping my periods, so I'm not entirely sure when to start my period week. Can I just start my placebo pills at any time to induce a period?

So, most doctors do like us to have a period periodically.  You need to built that into the plan.  but in general, you can skip your placebo week if you so desire to not have any bleeding/spotting at all.  When you decide to take the placebo week, I'd just do it like a regular pack.  You finish a pack and it starts with placebo, so start the new pack with placebo (or where it falls into the packaging).  Does that make senseS
