I just found out that I'm going on a camping trip in two weeks. Three days in the middle of the woods, no running water, etc. I'm excited about the trip, but I'm scheduled to be on my period that week.
I'm on HBC (Tri-Sprintec -- 3 weeks of active pills, increasing levels of hormones/different colored pills, followed by 1 week of placebos). I want to delay my period this month, if possible, but how successful will I be if I just skip my placebo week and move on to the next row? Or -- I'm on the last day of the first row of pills tomorrow -- should I just get another pack and continue with the lightest blue pills, thus delaying my period a week? Would that even work?
I'm a bit confused on how all of this works, so any help would be appreciated! If I must be on my period during the camping trip, I'll survive, but I'd prefer being period-free in the woods.
