    i was told once you start basic they take your current perscription and replace it? do they replace it with the same brand or a generic? if it is a generic thats where i run into a issue. iam on lo loestrin fe and there is no similar brand to it. iam on it because its a lower hormone bc. so i suffer from less side effects. if i bring enough to hold me through basic will i be able to take it?

    They try to keep you on the exact thing you currently are. The only problem would be if Cape May didn't have it. In that case, they may let you keep it.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    @Heather Me too! And I've been wondering the same thing.
    But I've got promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep. -Robert Frost

    They let me keep what I had brought with me to Cape May and then continued my Rx - so I know they let you keep it sometimes. And I skip the sugar pills so I need a refill every 3 weeks. They had no problem with that either. However, I always tell the girls to count on it getting taken away and replaced. It does happen, and better safe than sorry. A lot of that depends on the Doc that sees you. Also because God help you if you read that as "Oh, I can take my BC pills so I can bring my midol and vitamins and Zanax too!".

    If they reissue your RX, they will give you enough to last until week 5. Week 5 you get your special girl trip to medical for another pregnancy test before your small pox shot (just pee in a cup, nothing else!). They then will write an Rx for birth control for those who want it, or extend those who need it.
    Honor: if you need it defined, you don’t have it.

    I'm in the same boat as Heather in that the specific medicine isn't that common nor does it have a generic. I know switching medicine can have some yucky side effects so I am just hoping I won't have to. Makes sense that they would be hesitant about letting you keep it since it would lead to everyone wanting to keep something like you said!
