Hi Humblebee, if I were u, I would still take all of my pills as prescribed. If they weren't meant 2 b taken, they wouldn't put them In there. Just follow Drs directions.

The inactive pills are only in there to try to keep women in the habit of taking one each day, so they don't forget any while they are on the active pills and increase their pregnancy risk.

So no, they don't have to be taken, you can simply discard them.

Is there anything else I can help with?
