I will have to go off the pill for about a month or so because of my husbands change in jobs. I am only getting one packet then I will have to wait for a pap to get anymore. I have been on some sort of birth control since I was 14. We will use other precautions during that time. I am just worried it will whack my body out. I get severe cramps heavy bleeding and I think I have PMDD (It runs in my family). I usually do the continual 4 packets then a placebo week. This may be a very bad idea but, can I stretch a pack out by taking it every other day and using other precautions also? Did anyone have to do this before and did it mess you up? Thank you. I am just so scared it will mess my body up.
