    My OB/GYN has recently suggested that I continuously take my active birth control pills (Demulen/Zovia)indefinitely. I have tried this for short periods of time in the past for convenience factors. However, I have never done it more than 2 months in a row. Now, my doctor is suggesting that I can go on indefinitely taking the active pills without any sort of medical concerns.

    It sounds great - who wants to get their period? But it also seems kind of strange to me.

    Has anyone heard of this or have any experiences with it?
