I will be starting to take Levora (generic for Nordette; monophasic) in the next few months. I'm not currently sexually active, nor will I be until I marry in the summer. As with many people, I'm trying to avoid the bleeding part during the festivities/travelling.
1. If I choose to skip the placebo pills altogether, I've read that breakthrough bleeding/spotting is very likely. Is this true, or is this just a general warning?
2. In the next few months before I have to worry about birth control efficacy, is it possible to adjust the timing? For example, could I avoid the breakthrough/spotting concern entirely by, at some point, taking only 2 weeks of active pills, taking placebos right after, then going into a new pack entirely to shift the bleeding time forward?
