Ok, so I had a tubal ligation a few years ago and my cycles went crazy. I asked my doctor to put me on something to regulate me before my Hysteroscopy and Uterine Ablation. I am supposed to start my cycle next week in the middle of a vacation that I never ever have. I really really don't want to be on my period during a romantic getaway. What would happen if I started taking the Previfem now? 6 days before my cycle? Is it possible that I won't be on my period? I'm 33, 2 kids... Thank you!

Hello, Michelle! How are you?

Yes, it is possible that doing that might skip or delay your period and there's no harm in it, if your doctor approves.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, breakthrough bleeding and PMS-like symptoms.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I went in for my Pre op today and he told me to just double up Birth Control pills to hold it off... Told me to start tomorrow. I started light spotting today. Will this stop my cycle or just mess me up?

There's really no way to say for sure. Everyone's body is different.

But for the best results, following your doctor's advice would be the best thing to do.
