I am going on a trip in a month and do NOT want to have my period while I during it. However that is the week I will be taking the placebo pills and having my period. I have been taking sprintec for one month and have had no side effects at all. I never miss a pill and take them at the same time everyday. I know I can try to skip my period by starting the next pack immediately but I also know it might not work. I was wondering if there is anyone out there who have had no side effects from the pill and who have successfully skipped their period for 1 month with no breakthrough bleeding or spotting during the week that they skipped. Thank you all in advance!

Hello, Kate! How are you?

Yes, there are many women who have done so, including myself when I used to be on an oral contraceptive. Unless your doctor has specified some reason you shouldn't, then it is perfectly safe to do so.

However, just as you said, there are no guarantees. Is there anything else I can help with?

Thank you! I talked with my doctor and she said it was absolutely fine for me to try and skip. I do have one question: the first time you skipped did you have the breakthrough bleeding or a light period? This is exactly what I want to avoid but my doctor said that I am more than likely to experience this.

Three days ago I started my placebo pills and then started a new pack of my sprintec bc and I've been bleeding a little bit I was wondering if the light bleeding will completely stop after two or three days? Im going on vacation Friday and I don't want to be on my period this will be the first one I've skipped in a while but I have been able to skip it before... will my period come to an end if I keep taking my new pack on time every day??? Help!!!

I'm on sprintec 28 day and instead of taking the placebo pills I started on a new pack Sunday. I'm going on vacation this weekend and I didn't want to have a period at all. Well my stomach is cramping very bad as if I'm about to start my period. Is this normal? Will I start my period even if I started a new pack?
