If you use/have used the pill to skip a period, do you find it extends the time frame of PMS? I'm on a monophasic pill, and I thought about skipping my period this month, but I'm dying for my PMS to end, and I'm afraid it might go on for 4 more weeks if I don't get my period soon.

I've done it a couple of times, and I can definitely report the same thing. Cramps aren't usually an issue but mood can be and *definitely* bloating. My bloat won't go away until I have my period.

It won't hurt you, but it can make life a little unpleasant from time to time.

I always thought most of the pms was from the hormone levels during that time, so if you started a new pack right away, that would go away.

I would go to the seasonal website and see what they say about it. (the four giant periods pill)

I've tried it a few times and didn't feel ok till I had my period. I think it depends on your individual biochemistry, I know lots of women who are fine with this.
