So Bees, I have an appt to go on birth control at the end of the month. Two questions: Do I have to get a physical done in order to get BC? and is less than a month enough time to “work” and skip my period on my honeymoon?

I just had to have a “well-woman” exam (pap smear, breast exam, etc) the first time I got a BC prescription, not a full-on physical, but it could vary from practice to practice – just check with your doctor’s office.
As for the BC, it’s really hard to tell how you’ll react if you’ve never been on it before. Me personally? I can’t skip periods without having all kinds of breakthrough bleeding, but I know tons of girls that have zero problems from day 1. Totally depends on your body.

I know here in Ontario you need a physical and pap before getting BC.
I would talk to your DR about skipping it and if it is enough time. If you just dont stop taking it that month it will be skipped usually.
