User :   i have been taking Crisanta-LS,(Drospirenone and Ethinylestradiol) (24 day pack) as oral contraceptive. my first pack will finish on 4th of Dec. i will therefore have my periods approx on 7th of Dec (4 pill free days). Is there any way i can postpone my periods upto 17th of Dec. That means postponing my periods for 10 days. This is very important because i will be getting married in these 10 days. moreover will my pill protect from pregnancy me in these 10days.
Doctor :   hi
User :   hello doc
Doctor :  
give me some time to read
User :   okay
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :  
there is a way u can postpone periods
User :   how?
Doctor :   taking another pack of ocps in continuation with out a break will postpone ur periods

User :   should i continue my second pack upto 17th Dec and then stop for 4 days or continue without stopping till i reach pill free days of my second pack
Doctor :   u continue till pill free day
Doctor :  
that would be ideal
User :   in that case i will skip my periods. is it okay to do so?
Doctor :  
Doctor :  
its 100 percent fine
User :   doc will i be protected from pregnancy all this time. meaning will my pills be effective as OCP.
Doctor :  
Doctor :   ocps are nothing but oral contraceptive pills
Doctor :  
they will wrok
User :   doc my last query is that i have started OCP from 11th of this month. i am on my first pack (9 days to be exact). when should i expect the pills to be working effectively as a contraceptive.
Doctor :   even though u are taking ocps initially u should use some alternative means of contraception like condom

User :   okay doc i will certainly do that but how long should i wait to be sure that my ocp is effective. end of second pack or more?
Doctor :   atleast till the beginning of 2nd pack
User :   meaning third pack in my case, due to continuation of my second pack without break between first and second. Right Doc!
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :
