I'm taking the combined pill and have finished my first pack. I'm due to start my period today and I know that to delay my period that I just have to continue onto the next pack without a break. My only worry is whether or not it's a good idea to have sex because a friend of mine did the same thing and afterwards there was a lot of blood and I don't want this. I'm on the first day of delaying it and I haven't had any spotting so I shall see how it goes as I'm only going to delay it for a few days.
