I was on Lo/Ovral for years and loved it. I wanted to skip periods, but to avoid breakthrough bleeding I eased myself into it on this pill (GYN ok'd it, too.) Instead of 3 weeks on/1 week off, I would do 6 weeks on/1 off, then 7 on/1 off, etc. until I was at 8 or 9 on/1 off. It worked perfectly for scheduling my period when I wanted it to be.
Prior to coming off BCP last summer, I was on Seasonique for over a year which I also loved. That one uses low dose hormones during the period week (12 weeks regular/1 week low dose) instead of sugar pills. I picked that over Seasonale (sugar pills during period) b/c I was getting menstrual migraines.
