Medically Skipping Period

So I’m skipping my period for a few months using birth control, as recommended to me by the doctor since I’m not trying for kids and I have tough periods, and it’s been a few months. I was trying to avoid having a period on my birthday and during summer semester but my body has been feeling like it normally does when I’m about to start my period, and I’ve been spotting.

I haven’t once skipped a day on the pill, so I don’t think I could have accidentally triggered it. I have one pill left in the current pack and then I’m going to give in and let myself have a period, but I was just wondering if anyone else who has done the same has experienced pre-menstrual symptoms and spotting after skipping periods for a few months even while still taking the pill.

I really wanted to skip the whole summer because I have a lot going on rn but I don’t think I can put it off any longer. My body wants a period and who am I to argue with it? It knows more than I do, I suppose.
