View Full Version : Worried about pill
hi.. wondering if anyone knows if this is not right to do... i currently take the pill atm.. and instead of having AF visit i dont? just go onto the yellow pills straight away?? have done this for almost two years now... have had a few breaks in between though.. but unsure if ok?? i dont wanna do anything wrong...:confused:
(another bub someday....yay!!)
I have endometriousus(sp?) and I was told to skip the white pills to skip my af. So it is safe to do it otherwise they wouldn't of told me to do it.
I used to get hormonal problems and bad AF's so my doctor told me it was ok to take the pill back-to-back for 3 packets only and then have AF every third month. I did this for many years and it didn't affect my fertility, (did it?) ;) :laughing:
This is fine to do - I have had a hysterectomy now due to AF problems, and skipping white pills didn't work for me. But my gyno's wife has AF problems and does the same as you and has done for about 5 years and the only time she has had AF is when she had gastro and couldn't keep the pill in long enough (TMI?)...some people can't do this though, if they skip more than once or twice they spot through, but some people can keep going indefinately so if it's ok for a gyno's wife i'd say it's ok :thumbsup: Hope that helps.
BTW - I forgot to say that I skipped every second AF for about 3 1/2 years and thought I would have to be off the pill for some time before my body got back into it's fertility routine, but 2 weeks after I took my last pill I conceived!!!
I have read conflicting reports, some say its ok and some say that you should have a bleed atleast every 3 months to reduce the risk of utirine cancer. Reading up on PCOS where often women dont get periods at all is when I found allot of this info...
It might be worth asking a specialist. It might depend on the individual, if you are not building up any lining to shed then it probably doesnt matter but if you are (which you might be if you have been hading breakthrough bleeding) it may be best to shed it every now and then.
