Period and Holiday watch

    • #1
    • Thread Starter

    please keep anon as my friends would rip me for this!

    Anyway, I'm going on a beach holiday in August so obviously it would be quite awkward and embarrasing to be on a period at that time! So I wanted some advice from girls on the pill on how to time taking the pill so that I can delay my period by at least a week as the holiday is slap-bang in the middle of the week that I would have it! I'm due to start anytime now and I have enough pills to last for at least 2 months... I've never taken it before so I don't know when to take it or if it even stops it completely :rolleyes: help me please

    It depends on when you start the pill. Are you due a period before your holiday? If so, start the pill on the first day of that period, and it'll be 28 days before your next pill free week (aka period). This would mean that you won't come on for another 28 days - so in theory you'll be in between periods for your holiday.
