Thanks for query,
You can take for pretty long time without side effects.
but as this is hormonal pill short term break is advisable.
During vacation or your husband is out for few days,you may have break about 3-4 months.
ok and bye.

it is also use in other condition also
it has chance of side effect if taken for long time

For what reason you are taking this tab.As this is contraceptive pills used to avoid pregnancy,acne, heavy bleeding, to regularise menses.

If your using as contraceptive then you can continue till you want.

And for other reason consult doctor.
