Power News: Is It Safe To Delay Your Period?

Posted by Anup Baral | October 19, 2016 :
Women who take most brands of the combined contraceptive pill can take two packets back-to-back to skip a period, by missing out the 7-day break. See The Contraceptive Pill and Period Delay for more information. Most brands of the combined contraceptive pill can be used in this way, including Microgynon, Rigevidon, Cilest and Yasmin. If you use phasic pills, however, you should consult your doctor before using this method to delay your period (see below). Taking two packets of the pill back-to-back keeps the levels of oestrogen and progesterone in your body high, preventing your womb lining from shedding.
