Not sure if you wanted Toni's opinion here or not. If you did, let me know, and I'd be glad to email her about it.

Based on what I know, yes, it potentially could. However, we have lots of study on the pill used with a placebo week, so I'd say it's sound to presume that when used that way, without skipping that week, you're probably okay. It's an extra week of hormones that we do NOT have much long-term study on to date, and currently have NONE on for women still in puberty. So, as far as that goes, all we have is a very large question mark.
