I take Yasmin and I've done that where I didn't stop. That's exactly what my Dr. said, that technically I don't need to get my period if I don't want to. I feel safer if I do but if I have an important event or a vacation and it's that week, I'll just keep taking them. I haven't had any spotting, but I also haven't done it often enough to be an expert.
I get you on the anti-period. I had it for a month straight once, that was interesting hahah. Needless to say, they found out I had some issues going on haha.
No you only need a period to get pregnant Some people like to have one so they know they aren't pregnant, but otherwise it's more for your comfort. It does not harm you in anyway! The longer I go without one and the more I take my pills thru the spotting (I was getting some spotting every 3-4 months) I notice that it stays away longer and when I do have my 'period' it's like 2 days of nothing and it's gone.
I use Seasonelle now and will consider Alesse when I want to switch, but Yasmin was on her list. it's nice to have options when the bleeding comes at a very inconvenient time.
I never had spotting early on in the process..... I have been getting some more lately- thinking maybe wedding stress. Doctor suggested I change my pill up as maybe I am just getting used to this one but until it's really inconvenient I will stick it out.
All my family has heavy bleeding. My mom had to have a hysterectomy from it. My other sister needed iron injections from the blood loss!
