Thank you for your consult at DoctorSpring.com. I can understand your concern.

As you are having PCOD, there is absolutely no way to predict when you will menstruate if you stop your pill today.

If you wish to postpone your period, continue taking the 21 day pack back to back.
Start the new pack right from tomorrow, and continue taking it back to back.

That way, you will ensure that you do not bleed on your holiday.

Leaving pill free will leave you with an area of unpredictability, which is best avoided.

All the best.
Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask for further clarifications.

so it is safe to use yasmin back to back? will this cause any futhure problems like spotting and problems if i want concive.


Expert:  Dr. Aarti Vazirani replied 3 Days.

Using Yasmin back to back for one cycle will not cause any problems in conception in future.

Also, it will not cause any spotting if so far you have not had any breakthrough bleeding with Yasmin.

Take care.
