Hey girls! I’m on the pill my period came a day early and the cramps are unreal. I’m on day 2 and as of right now there’s a lot of clots and it’s definitely going to be a heavy long period. What do y’all do for heavy and cramps periods? I have to attended a funeral tomorrow so I’ll be out all morning/ afternoon long and I’m worried. Love to hear some of your advice. Thanks!

it’s not a period as you don’t ovulate on the pill. it’s a withdrawal bleed on your break week and a breakthrough bleed during your active pills.
are you on your active pills or placebo pills?

@nikeyxo hey! I know it’s a break week and technically not a period but I’m so used to saying period it was out of habit! Sorry. I’m taking my placebo pill now. I just wanted to know what everyone does for cramps and heavier periods.

you can skip your break week and just take your active pills and that could potentially stop the bleeding :)

@nikeyxo I’ve never done that before! I was wondering if taking my active pills sooner then I would, would slow my period down or potentially stop it since I already took 2 placebo pills? Thanks for your help!

yes it could stop it but it’s not guaranteed and you could still get breakthrough bleeding but it works for many users. you’re welcome!
