I am 26 and have never been on the pill. I am really hoping my period does not come for the wedding/honeymoon. I have been keeping track of it and it looked like it owuld be okay, but when you are not the pill it is not the same amount of days each time.
Well anyway, this last period was like a week late, so all my calculating is out the window. Part of me wants to just go on the pill so i can stop worrying about when my period will start.
Since I have never been on it I am all worried about it. I am worried it will make me fat or soemthing. I have heard that this is a rumor but then I have heard others swear it is true. I just need some advice. I would hate to be on my period for the wedding/honeymoon but I would also hate to have weird side effects from the pill.
help! the wedding is only 3 months away! ahhhhh

With only three months to go, you may have problems. You may have bad side effects (they are usually in the first few months if you get them) and it sometimes takes a few months to regulate your cycle on the pill. Plus, if you find that your period will be due (with the pill) during your wedding/honeymoon, I’m not sure you can manipulate it in time without spotting and it possibly not working (since you’ve only been on the pill a few months). I would check with your doctor ASAP. If he/she does recommend it and you want to try it, you need to start it as soon as possible. Good luck!

All I can say is that each person reacts completely differently to the pill, and there a a million different kinds of BC as well. The best thing to do would be to talk to your doctor and discuss low-hormone level pills, as I believe those typically have fewer side effects. Some people gain weight, some people lose weight on the pill, so it’s hard to know until you try it for yourself. I personally did gain about 8-10 pounds after I went on the pill, but I also moved in with my boyfriend (now FI) around the same time, so it’s hard to know which caused the weight gain, lol. And I also didn’t gain the weight until about 3 months after I went on the pill, so even if you did gain weight, I don’t think it’ll be instantaneous, so you should definietly still be fine for your wedding dress, if that’s a concern.
I will say that I LOVE knowing exactly when I’m getting my period. And going on the pill has also cleared up my skin (I never had bad acne, but I rarely even get single pimples anymore). Goodl uck with whatever you decide!
