Can I skip getting my period for a month?

My husband and I are going on a week-long milestone anniversary trip, and wouldn't you know it, I'm going to get my period that week. For obvious reasons, I'd prefer that not to happen. Can I game my birth control pills so that it doesn't? [more inside]

If you love your job and work a lot, how do you adjust in slow periods?

I know this is a very nice problem to have. However: if you are someone who loves the work you do, how do you deal with the inevitable slow periods? I have a job that is very challenging, fast-paced, and genuinely helps people. It is also often very stressful. I love my job. About two or three times a year, though, conditions will shift and all at once I may have a week or two that is considerably less busy. During this time period, I find myself to be quite irritable. A day or two of catching up on errands or sleep and I am ready to be back to the regular pace. Four or five days in, I am very impatient and cranky. [more inside]

Any clue as to what is wrong with my period? Thyroid? Perimenopause?

I know you are not my doctor and this question may seem dumb but I could use some experience, answers, something. I'm just lost right now. I'm dealing with issues regarding my period. I got my hormone levels back but they don't point to anything specific or alarming. I'm worried because my periods have definitely shortened and I don't seem to ovulate the way I used to yet I'm running out of ideas as to whats wrong with me. Hormone levels and history included.

I don't have periods. Anyone else?

I don't really have periods. I have one maybe twice a year and when it comes it's very normal (slight PMS symptoms, minor cramps, lasts about 5 days). I started my period when I was 11 and I've never had regular periods, it's always been this exact pattern. [more inside]
