I'm on Alysena 21 and awhile ago asked my doctor if I could take IT continuously. I have been for almost three months now, and he did say that you might feel bloated and have spotting if you don't take a break after three to four months, but he didn't really say that you absolutely have to take a break.
I've had just abit of spotting, and if I really don't have to, I'd rather not take a break and continue taking it continuously. Is this not a good idea? Does any other ladies take birth control continuously and not take a break? My periods are horrible and I am anemic so I'd rather just not have any bleeding for as long as I can.

But periods on birth control are far far much lighter. I advice you to take a break as your pomping your body full with artificial hormones. Doctors don't inform women fully on the risks of taking the pill. There's a 50% higher chance women will develop breast cancer when taking hormonal bc. Has your doctor told you that? Mine never mentioned any consequences,0
