Why are you already on them? I would stop them, and wait until your october cycle to start them again. You don’t want to be on them too long as they can oversuppress you.

I am on them because of my endometriosis. We cant get preg naturally anyways so it was to prevent my endo from getting worse. I also have excruciating periods not on BC. Last time I stoped BC bled for 2 months which is not good. My RE said to stay on them but didnt clearly answer my question. I may have asked in a confusing way tho lol.

You may want to call the nurse and ask in that case.

Ill ask again thanks! Just didnt know what other ladies may have done.

Every cycle that I’ve done they make me come off and go back on so I’m not oversupressed so I’d definitely call the nurse and clarify that! Good luck!
