My male colleague told me that his cousin's doctor had prescribed her a pill so that she wouldn't get her period during her honeymoon because she had calculated that it would come right around that time.
As you may remember, I'm going to Europe next week, and I'm getting my "monthly statement" right smack in the middle of my vacation. What a bummer.
I called the pharmacist who said I could try Seasonique and get my period every three months. When I told her I was already on birth control, she said that as I'm finishing my 3rd week of active pills, instead of taking the sugar pills (4th week), I could start the 1st week on a new second pack and not get a period that month- though she didn't recommend it.
"Or you could get pregnant and not get a period, though I don't think that's what you want," she said
"Yeah, ok you don't have to say that" I told her.
So as she cracked this joke, I took her less seriously and finished the call. I've never heard of skipping a period, or trying the 3 week thing.
I'd like to get your input before I call my doctor tomorrow morning, get put on hold and leave a message to ask her what I can do to delay or skip November's period completely.
Any information, comments or suggestions??
(I take TriSprintec, Target's generic birth control)
