Spotting/Skipping Active Pills

Patient: I have been on birth control for about 3 months now and recently skipped my last two periods by just skipping the placebo (Portia). I have been on and off spotting for two weeks now and was wondering if I could skip the last week of my active pills and go straight to the sugar pills so that I could just get the period and stop the spotting.

 

 

Symptoms: Spotting
