... and I am due for a shot on July 12. Beginning a few shots in, I've noticed that about a month before I'm due, I'll begin my period. Nothing will stop it except getting the shot. I was wondering if anyone else experiences this, and if there is anything I should do? My physician will not allow me to get my shot any more than a week earlier than I'm due, so pushing my shot forward is hardly an option. I tried the ibuprofen method once with no avail.. I'll be trying gelatin tonight for a short break so I can be with my partner. PLS let me know ASAP! If I should go off the shot, I would need to know soon because my partner is going on military leave for a year, giving me an ideal break window.
