Starting birth control mid-cycle, specifically to be period-free for a certain week.

I have an international trip coming up in two weeks. I went off birth control about 6 months ago, and would like to get back on it, to avoid dealing with my period during the trip. I have no experience with starting BC mid-cycle, and when breakthrough bleeding generally happens (immediately? Towards the end of the 30-day pack?). When is the best time to start? Now? A few days before the trip? [more inside]

Bitter little pill

I want to take birth control pills again. But in the past I've had lots of problems with the three different pills I've tried. I know you are not a doctor, or my doctor, and I will see my doctor. But your experiences with birth control might help me make my choice when I do see the doc. So please, tell me, have you ever taken a birth control pill WITHOUT loss of libido, mood swings, madness, weight gain and skin issues? If so, what pill did you take? [more inside]

How can I shorten my period naturally?

Is there a way to shorten my period that does NOT involve birth control? I have a period that lasts seven to nine days, seven if I'm lucky. At least three to four of those days are quite heavy. It's a huge pain, for reasons detailed under the cut. Would weight loss work? Diet? Increased exercise? Ancient herbal secrets? Is there anything, anything at all? Has anything caused a permanent shortening of your cycle? [more inside]
