This is a strange question. All I can say after being on the pills for 19 years is if you continue to take the pills and don't do the 7 day break you will never have a period. It s quite safe to do this and the 7 day break was only suggested to make women feel like they were still having a monthly cycle. This is not the case the bleed you get is just the wearing off of pills and not the natural breakng down of the uterus lining. The pill keeps the body at a suspended state hormonally which is why people with PMS are told to go on the pill. If you want to stop a bleed just continue to take the pill this is far safer to do than missing pills. I hope this helps in some way!
