Re: seasonal & getting period
I was on Seasonale for a couple of years, and when I first started, the first couple of packs that is, I would have some breakthru spotting about half way thru the pack. It took at least 2 packs, maybe 3 before I didn't really have that spotting. I guess I would start taking it as soon as possible, and thru your vacation...so that would mean starting the Sunday after your next period, right? Its been a while since I started a new pack of pills, hard to remember. I would guess, if you start with your next period and stop when you get home, then you shouldn't have to worry while you are on vacation. I wouldn't stop 1-2 weeks before vacation, that might have the opposite effect, you never know how your body will react to extra hormones and then taking them away, you might have to deal with a long period or something. Staying on them thru vacation seems like the best way to keep your period away.
