Re: New & Hesitant
It's doable, but you have to keep in mind that it works better for those who have been using BCP for sometime to avoid all side effects related to just starting/introducing a new pill.
The reason is that if you're gone start it say, either the first day of your upcoming menses (you are protected from that day from pregnancy)or the first sunday after your upcoming menses, you have to allow your body three consequetive months to get used to the pill: i.e. bloating, side effects and spotting.
If you have these three months trial than your vacation falls on month four, you keep going on the pill skipping the placebo inactive ones, meaning that you start a new package (of month 5) immediatly after the active pills of month four end. You won't have a period for that time.
