I'm on yaz & just started my period today. So if the timing goes correctly [somewhere from 27-30 days] then that will put next months period being right there at christmas and the week after. I definitely don't want to be miserable during this time & i'm thinking about skipping my placebos for next month.

Should I expect a heavier period the month after or any spotting?

Skipping the placebo's is fine.

As the hormones in the pill inhibit the growth of the uterine lining I doubt you would find it significantly heavier.

But it is a possibility and break through spotting is a possibility but a little spotting isn't as bad as having a full on period through christmas.

Good luck

Want to Skip My Period But Am Not On Birth Control..........
I'm leaving for vacation on the 26th and i usually get my period the last week of the month. I don't want to get my period when I go on vacation and I am not taking any birth control.....how can I skip it? Should I start taking a birth control so I can skip it that week?

If you start birth control now or next week, your period should come during the placebo week, after your vacation.

Want to skip my period
I am supposed to get my period this Wednesday and have plans and don't want to get it. If I begin taking birth control on Sunday will it stop my period for coming? Or is it not enough time for me to be on birth control and the hormones in my body and I will still get my period?

Without being on the pill you can't just skip a period.
