Im getting married on April 20 and honeymooning until May 2nd. My period is due on the 20th April grrrr!
My dr has given me a prescription for the pill. Would you usually start the combined pill the day your period comes? Which would mean by the time iv taken the active pills my next period at the end of march should we a week earlier anyway? So confused. I know I prob dont have enough time but figure its worth a short because regardless now im going to have my period!

@MeeShell: Have you started taking the pill already? Because it’s possible to skip your period, and start the next pack of pills on your week of placebo pills, but from what I understand, it’s hard to get it to really equalize right away.

It really depends on what pills you’re taking – I would ask your doctor.

@MeeShell: I cycle my periods using the pill I usually go a good 3-4 months without one at all, so I just have 3 to 4 periods a year. It’s very convenient for me.
Than being said, call your Dr. to let them know what you would like to do, to ensure that they have given you the pill that they think would work best for this. The ones that I take have a constant dosage until the placebo week, which I skip anyway.

Definitely talk to your doctor. This is probably a call or email question, you won’t need to schedule an appointment.

Thanks for the reply. My Dr is well aware of my intentions, she advised it was possible to change the date but I could experience some spotting. Im not usually on the pill and am purely taking it to avoid getting my period on my wedding date which is when it is due. We wanted to try for a honeymoon baby so I wanted to bring it forward from the 20th April to around the 10th.
Iv read the instructions that came with the pill and it says you can control the date of the period by shortening (never lengthning) the amount of pills you take. My period is due tomorrow. Would I be best to start the first active pill tomorrow on day one of my cycle.
