Question: delaying my period?
|Trang - Tue Dec 23, 2008 4:47 pm||
im taking yasmin(combined pill) and want to delay my period for just a few days....do i have to continue on and take the full 21 of the next strip?? or can i just take the 2 or 3 extra days i need from the next strip, take the 7 day break and continue on with a 21 day as normal after? i would prefer the latter!

Yes, you can delay the period by just a few days - whatever works for you. It is not necessary to have periods to be healthy.
