I am looking for some advice (I have called my pharmacy already). My honeymoon is July 4-21st. My period is going to happen July 8th as it stands now. I want to push it back, lets say 10 days. Last period was December 24th. My pharmacist says to not take the sugar pills for three months (Jan,Feb,March) and then once I get my period it may be heavier. My period will be two weeks earlier in July, but I may spot while on vacation. I’m not really smart with these types of things, but would it not make sense to not take two active pills each month till then?

@weightwatchers152: i use nuvaring, but when i did use pills i could just skip my period by taking the active pills continuously for up to like 3-4 months. but sometimes I would get spotting around the 4 month mark. everyone’s body reacts differently so it’s impossible to say what you should do
ETA: i wouldn’t skip the active pills

I’d probably skip two sugar pills each month. For me 4 days withdrawal was enough to get my period, so if I ever wanted to move it around I’d skip 1-3 sugar pills. But of course, ask your doctor if this safe for you.

I take minigest and I usually take it continuasly, I did this on my vacation last year, took 2 sets withou the 7 days stop, as it said to be done by the instructions. And I sometimes do it when it conflits with my swimming lessons (I can’t/don’t want to wear tanpons).

I hope you can skip your period free and clean, but in case you have some spoting or something these might help. I use something like them, natural sea sponges, just even smaller, only while we’re having sex during my period, then I take them out and use my cup the rest of the time. I love them and as long as I get them up fairly high neither of us can feel them. Good luck!

Just don’t take your sugar pills before its due at honey moon time, then take the next lot of active pills, then your period will come at the next lot of sugar pills. I do this and it works really well.

Skip the sugar pills. I do it all the time, however you could have some breakthrough bleeding even while doing this(which I had last week). Also, be super anal about taking your pills at the same time every day. I found that if I am off by 5 min or so then I can get breakthrough bleeding.
