Hey, I've been taking the combined pill (Rigevidon - a 21/7 pill) for about 5 months now but for various reasons I've gotten into the habit of taking pill packs back to back.
I'm currently on my 4th pack of pills without taking a break and I was wondering if this is safe to do so? I haven't experienced any unpleasant side effects, except that just today I seem to have got some breakthrough bleeding.
Are there any serious health risks with continuous use of the pill?

Have you discussed htis with your prescribing doctor? If not, I would suggest you do so.
