- Wedding: July 2012 - Woodwinds
So there was a person last week who asked a question about skipping thier period.
I am in the middle of doing this right now- so I am writing this article to help the next girl after me find some info easier than I was able to.
It is my first tim doing this and I am doing it to push my cycle 4 days forward so my period at the end of June is gone in time for my July 1st wedding.
I am on Lo Estrin 24 which is a monophasic pill. I have 4 iron pills in my pack
So 24 active- 4 non active
So i can only speak from experiece with this pill. Which I have been on for a year and a half ( prio to this I was on Ortho Tri cyclen Lo )
I am on day three of taking my active pill ( which would have been day three on my inactive pills) I started them right after my other pack ended.
– It ended Wednesday- I started the new pack Thursday
Tomorrow ( Sunday) will be the days I woud have been on my inactive pills – and when Monday rolls around (the day I would have taken my first inactive pill) I will take my 5th active pill .
So far I havent gotten any spotting – I have had mild breast soreness and a bit some cramps but nothing major and def less than I get when my withdrawl bleed comes
Hope this is hopeful
