I know I've mentioned Paris. We are now counting in weeks till we leave instead of months! So excited!! But my PCOS/unpredictable cycles pose a problem. I went to Italy 3 years ago and AF was a mid-week visitor. If you've ever traveled to Europe you know that finding a bathroom can pose a big problem.

To state the obvious, I don't really want AF on our trip. Where I am going with this? Well, since I have 9 (no exaggeration here) scripts of the 'mid sitting at my friendly Wal.greens, I filled one of them. Started it last night. Just 50mg. Just enough so that I know AF will visit before we leave for Paris and I won't start while we're there.

I did the only thing I could yesterday, I filled the one that was set to expire today. So I have 8 more... and enough to last me the rest of this calendar year if I chose. I won't do that, of course, but when I need to control my cycle a girl has to do, what a girl has to do.



  1. Have a fabulous time in Paris! Make sure to have macarons from LaDuree. There is nothing in the world like them!!!!!!!!

  2. Eh, i've always controlled when AF will arrive with some meds or other method, it seems. Way back when it was BCP, now the combo of acu & provera. BCP was much more reliable, but acu & provera don't make me crazy. Glad the biatch won't show on your trip!!
