Question
I have PCOS and I am currently prescribed to Natazia for it. I would like to wait 1 week to take my next pack, what are the consequences of this? I am not in the middle of a pack and I have been on this pill for about 3-4 years.

Answer
Most likely the only consequence will be that you lose protection from pregnancy when you go more than 7 days without an active pill (one containing both hormones).  Once you re-start a new pack, you'll be protected again after being on the active pills for 7 days.
