Stopping Periods
Hi Ladies,

I am not using any oral/injected contraceptives at the moment. If I start taking the pill once I have finished my period (am on it now) and skip the inactive pills when the next period comes, will I skip it? Or is it to soon for the hormones to kick in?

I am going away and it is slap bang in the middle of it.

Thanking you in advance for your answers.

You should skip a period if you skip the placebos.

Best wishes
