We completely understand wanting to skip your period for a special event! If you are able to plan ahead, we recommend taking birth control for at least one full cycle/month prior to trying to skip your period. Often, many women experience irregular spotting the first time they skip their period with birth control. Though this is lighter than a regular period, it still can be unwelcome. When you submit a request for birth control, please share the date of your event and we’ll do our best to make sure your period is one less thing you need to worry about.
