Will this feminine manipulation work on this pill?
Hi, I’m on a generic version of the birth control pill Yasmin. I’ve been on it for more than four years, and we get along well. I’ve never tried skipping or changing a period, but now I’m considering it. I’m supposed to have my period the week of October 8th, but for reasons I won’t go into I’d rather not. I’d be fine with either skipping it or trying to have it next week instead.
Because this is a low-dose pill, I’m worried that it’ll backfire and I’ll end up bleeding for a few weeks. I sort of feel like I still have remnants of a cycle even though I’m on the pill, and my general feeling is that I don’t want to mess with it. However, if it’s going to work perfectly it would be worth it.
Therefore, is anyone on this pill and have you manipulated the timing of your period? I know no one can tell me exactly how it will be, but any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
