@Zully:  if you arn’t on BC and not planining on taking it you can’t really manipulate your period so you won’t be able to do anything regardless if aunt flow is attending your wedding or not.  

Otherwise there are plenty of cycle tracking apps out there.  I use my calendar.

I’m not much help because I don’t track mine, lol. Buuuut I’ve used an app on my phone in the past to try to track my period…I think it was called “My Days” or something, and it was free…but I don’t know how well it works because I completely lost interest and never opened the app haha! Good luck!

Not sure where in the world you are, so I can only speak from the experience of a UK bee…

You might want to ask your doctor about Norethisterone. It’s like the pill but meant for temporary usage only, for example going on holiday and not wanting to be unable to enjoy the pool, or in our case the all important wedding day/night. You basically start taking it three days before you’re due to start your period (one pill, three times a day) for as long as required and then when you stop, your period tends to start about three days later. It’s prescription only here in the UK.

As I said, this is only ever meant as a temporary measure for anyone wanting to delay their period.

Hope this helps. Smile

@Zully:  The app is only accurate if you are regular Wink.  If you are irregular no ammount of tracking will fix it. If you are regular it is spot on.


@MelissaMajoria:  cool, never heard of that.

i use an app called “pink pad”. i’m not regular, though. i went off bc over the summer, cause i’ve been trying to decide whether to get an IUD or not. the tracker does help though, it’s generally a day or two (or five or eight) off for me, because of my non-regular cycles. but it does work for a lot of people.

@Zully:  The apps aren’t magical.  If your body has regular periods, then you should be fine with figuring it out.  However, if your body has irregular periods or is sensitive to stress/weight fluctuations/lack of sleep/etc, you may find that you won’t be able to predict when you’ll have your period months down the line.

I use MyDays and My Calendar and they’re both accurate. Obviously more so if you have a bit of a track record, but even after one cycle they’ll get it right within a day or two. I would go all in if I were you though, keeping a log for temperature and mucus as well – that way you get a better idea of what’s really happening.

In terms of changing your diet and exercise, I find that those things don’t affect my period so much – stress does though. So my only advice on that would be to try to cut potential stress factors in your life if you feel like you’re irregular.
