Hello Heather,
I have a boyfriend that is away at school and I'm suppose to have my period next time he is home. I was thinking of overlapping pills but I would like to hear more about it. Could you help me out on this one?

You'll want to talk to your prescribing doctor on this. Taking pills back to pack to skip the withdrawal bleed isn't possible with every brand of the pill, so you'll want to double-check to make sure it's okay.

You'll also want to be aware that it doesn't always work: you may wind up getting your bleed anyway, or you may wind up spotting for that entire cycle.

If you doctor is out of town you can ask your doctor's nurse.
