Hello,
If you have already started taking KRIMSON 35 since 30th may,then you continue taking it.There is no need to take REGESTERONE now.
Continue your KRIMSON 35 daily at same time and you can either take it for 21 days or you can stop this after you come back from your holidays.
On stopping your KRIMSON,you will get withdrawl bleeding.
Little spotting is common while taking KRIMSON and so it should not be worried about.
I hope everything is clear now.
You are most welcome to ask any other query if you wish.
Best of luck for your holidays.
Thanks
