How did you stop typing two spaces after the end of a sentence?

Putting two spaces after a period/?! is out of favor now, and apparently has been for a while depending on who you ask. How did you break yourself of this habit? Even typing this I was thinking about it and still had to go back and correct each one! [more inside]

Taking more than 7 days between birth control packs - ?

I just realized that I'll be starting my period a few days after the start of our vacation we have scheduled in a couple of months (ugh). I'm taking hormonal birth control and wondering what the best way is to basically adjust my cycle so that I can start my period about four days later than I'm currently scheduled to. [more inside]

Cemeteries -- use of a period?

I was walking in an old cemetery last weekend, and I noticed that many of the tombstones dating from around the late 19th to the early 20th centuries used a period after the surname on the tombstone: "JONES." and not "JONES" by itself. Can anybody point me to any resources for learning about this particular style convention?

It has come to this: I'm asking about my wife's ladybits on the internet

My wife has been having the heaviest period of her life, complete with cartoonishly exaggerated mood swings, for almost two weeks now. This began very suddenly, three days after her last normal period. Tests and biopsies all came back normal; doctor is recommending the pill or a progesterone IUD to get the bleeding under control. But there is a difficulty: she doesn't react well to progesterone at all (details inside). Two-part question: Can anyone think of possible causes for this which wouldn't have shown up on the tests she's already had (detailed inside again)? And B, have any of you who react similarly to progesterone had success combining the pill with antidepressants? [more inside]

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]
