Hello, I have recently started taking logynon ed. I have nearly come to the end of the 3rd week and want to have a break as I am going on holiday. From my understanding, I have to skip the placebo pills and then start the first day of my next packet straight away - is this correct? Also,
when I come to the 3rd week of the 2nd packet how many days of the placebo pills should I take as my 'break' - is it 4 or the whole 7? Thank you

Thanks for the query.
What you are saying is absolutely correct.
To post pone your periods,you have to immediately start your next pack of pills after completing 3 weeks of the pill .you have to totally miss your placebo pills.
Now when you come to the 3rd week of second packet,you can take all the 7 pills.
Sometimes doctor advises you take it for just 4 days.It simply helps in reducing withdrawl symptoms and unscheduled bleeding.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
