....about the Tablets that can stop your AF when you are on holiday etc.

I've just got a supply,and was told to take them 3 days before AF starts.

Trouble is sometimes I start AF earlier than my usual 28 days.

What do I do if AF comes and I haven't started them?
Can I start them when I'm bleeding? hmm

Ok thanks LittleMissNorty.

They might not do much for you if you're already bleeding. It won't hurt to take them for a few extra days, so start them in plenty of time to be on the safe side.

Be warned: they can turn you into a screaming banshee of a haridan, so be prepared ...

Ooops ... sorry about the name; changed it for a silly thread and forgot blush

Yes I was lurking on that same thread.Thanks for info Shitehawk.

Interesting about the haridan bit as they are also used to help PMT...hmm

Got to say they wouldn't have done much for my PMT. They turned me into a deranged loon, dh spent most of his time hiding in the garage to get out of the way! Honestly, I was horrible to be around. If you're only taking them for a short time, though, that probably won't be so bad.

The plus side is that they are very effective indeed at controlling the bleeding.

Hope you get on OK with them.
