    I started my pill free week on Monday - withdrawal bleed started Late Wednesday evening. I was then invited to an event this weekend and would really rather not be "on" I started to take my pill again on Thursday evening (so only had a 3 day break) as I am no longer withdrawing my body from the hormones is this likely to stop or reduce the flow by Saturday?

    Normally I'd have just run packs together but got invited a few days too late!!

    Thanks

    It may not. These bleeds are the most annoying!

    But, what I could suggest would be to buy whats called a Mooncup/Divacup depending on the brand. You can wear it for up to 12 hours (it says 8 now, but when I got it, it said 12..) with no risk of TSS. It also doesn't need to be disposed of because its reusable! It doesn't leak and because its reusable, any blood can be discreetly tipped down the toilet
