My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship because of college. We have three weeks to spend together for Christmas...


and I really don't want to be bleeding for one of them!!


I've done the research, and I can't really come to any conclusions as there are arguments for both sides... is it safe to skip the placebo pills and start right into the active pills, just this once?

Just to be on the safe side- go ahead and place a call to your doctor to double check.


I know women who have done this for a vacation, or a honeymoon, myself included, with no adverse effects.


I don't anticipate there would be any reason that you could not do this for just that one month, but it's always best to check with your doctor, just place a quick call.

As long as you have no other health risks (stroke, maybe heavy smoking, heart problems, etc). Thats why its best to check with doc. You could call a nurses helpline too... I only know the canadian numbers though.


Some women try skipping it and end up getting their period anyways. Good luck tho!
