Help! Skipping period...


ello! I was on birth control for many years and went off about 6 months ago for personal reasons. I am leaving for an international vacation this month and am scheduled to have my period while we are there. My doctor told me I can go back on birth control (same kind as before) and just skip the placebo pills and start a new pack to skip my period for vaca. I used to do this often when I was on the pill but I'm not convinced this will work in this scenario since I have been off of it for months now and it can take our bodies time to re adjust to being on the pill.

Was hoping for any insight or advice here. I'm scheduled to leave on my trip in 11 days so would need to start the pill today if I choose to take the chance.

Thanks in advance!
