On microgynon contraception. Can I take it for extended duration?

hello! My question is about microgynon contraception . I have been on it for 5 months. i have taken 5 weeks worth no break (i ran my second pack back to back) i was wondering if its possible to break a week early and take five weeks instead of six? i usually have my seven day break on a tuesday. then id resume my next pack after my seven day break. many thanks.

Thanks for writing to us.
You can continue with the hormonal pill and take it for an extended period but it can cause some menstrual irregularities.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
