Anita Says:


My doctor put me on Tri-Sprintec to help control/regulate my period and to also help stop my next months period because of vacation. Can I start taking the pills this Sunday in hopes that I don't start in a week and a half? Is it possible to through my period of this month? meaning if I start taking the pills on jan 13th would I possibly start my period on Feb 3rd which is exactly 4 weeks. Please help! I don't want to be on my period during our very expensive vacation. Thank you

Yes, it is possible, though it can't be guaranteed, because you are new to taking hormonal contraceptives, so some breakthrough bleeding may still occur while your body is adjusting to the hormones.

Learn more oral contraceptive details here.

If you start when when you aren't menstruating, then you'll also need to make sure not to have unprotected sex for the first 7 days, because it will take that long for them to be effective and protect you against pregnancy.

Unless there is a specific medical reason to not do so, many women use oral contraceptives to help control their menstrual cycles.

Are there any other questions I can help with?
