anyone stopped their cycle?

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking of supressing the monthly thing that is like running my body through a trash compactor. i've been on spiro for 6 months at 100mg a day, decent results but i still break out like mad during that awesome time?

anyone tried this?

long term risks?

i guess it's easier than a sex change :dance:

It is true that you can skip periods using birth control. But it's not true that all pills are created equal when it comes to skipping. You have to be careful about what kind of birth control pills you are on (monophasic or triphasic) when it comes to skipping periods. So no, it's not really just a marketing thing. But yes, you can use other pills in the same way to an extent. However my doctor advised me to never skip more than one cycle using my birth control.
