Customer Question

I am taking Prempak C 0.625, but want to avoid a period during my holiday. What is the best way to go about that? Holiday is from 17 to 23 October, I'll start a new pack on 17/10!
JA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?
Customer: I am very fine! Periods are regular, but for some 2/3 days crmps and bleeding
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I'm using Prempak for over 20 years, am 72, and during that holiday my daughter will marry In Malindi, which is a tropical beach.. :)

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

I understand your concern.

For how many days in a cycle you are taking Prempak C?

Your periods still going on at 72?

Expert:  Dr Chaithanya replied 2 months ago.

What I suggest is start the pack on 22nd, 23rd or 24th after you finish your holiday

If you start on 17th, you have withdrawal bleeding in the middle. This would be an ideal thing to do, and it is harmless

Hope this helps
