i had mine on wedding day =( but all in all it wasnt too bad. Im very close with my MOH and she helped me in bathroom , so did Hubbys sister. as long as someone holds your dress for your its not too hard to change “stuff’. And the wedding night we still got to have fun. just put some towels down. in marriage theres going to be alot of “yucky” things, and a little blood should be least of your worries.

🙁  What a downer.  You can still have sex, though, it’s just… messier.  And not even that bad if you’re ok with douching first.  Plus orgasms are really good for cramps!

But just make an appointment with your doctor and go over your options.  I’m sure you can come up with something.

@awake_my_soul:  If you can’t take the pill then you can’t take Plan B.  It’s basically a whopping dose of the pill.  Also, knowing how the hormonal effects of getting on and accustomed to oral contraceptives.  I do not suggest doing so in the thick of planning a wedding.  You will be an emotional mess.

How heavy is your flow?  I was on mine on the wedding day (last day or so) and just changed my tampon right before the ceremony.  We left by midnight so I never had to change it.  As for sex, there are no rules against having it while you have your Aunt Flo in town.  Just use a towel.

ETA: You couldn’t pay me enough to wear a pad in a wedding gown!  It’s already hot enough under there!  Talk about swamp a**!

You could change completely out of your dress every time you need to use the restroom and then change back into it once you’re finished.

I actually did this on my wedding day for several reasons.  The only downside to doing this — one that I really had not thought through, is that it took about 20 minutes for each of these restroom breaks, from start to finish, given all that was required for me to get out of and back into my gown.

@awake_my_soul:  That really stinks.  I’m sorry.  Does Plan B make your period come early?

It sounds like your best plan of action is assigning the task ahead of time to a friend to help hold the gown while you take care of business.  I really recommend against the pad though, I think you will regret it.  However, if you have to change every couple of hours then you can always just try it and see how it goes.

Have you ever tried the depo shot or nuva ring?

@awake_my_soul:  Do you happen to have a pic of your gown?  Maybe we can talk logistics if anything.

I really REALLY do not recommend taking any sort of hormonal pill to try to throw off your cycle. Your body works hard to regulate itself and when you start on hormonal pills you are for example supposed to start at the end of your cycle on the sunday after. Beginning hormonal pills in the middle of a cycle is going to throw your body through a loop.

@awake_my_soul:  This is weird, but I’ve heard drinking a lot of parsley tea can make it come a week or so early. A friend of mine tried it and it actually worked for her, but you never know what else could have caused it of course. Here’s an article:

I’ve also heard loading your body with vitamin C (it is a water-soluble vitamin, so you can’t really overdose or anything) can do the same.

@awake_my_soul:  I honestly wouldn’t do anything. BC can have too many side effects right away, which would make it worse. I aslo wouldn’t do plan B in that case.

I didn’t have mine because I purposely skipped it, but even if you were on day 2 of your period, you will be too busy to notice, I promise. The day is so busy and lovely that you aren’t worries about that much.

And if you do have to change your pad/tampon, whatever you decide, you can do it with a dress on. If you have a friend (or even your hubby) that you really trust have them hold your dress up for you. Otherwise, you may have to slide all your undergarments off, do your business, and then put everything underneath back on.

sorry, i have to advice

i am expecting my period 2 days after my wedding, next week.

i was super worried about blood and a white dress.

maybe stress will delay your period?

 

not period related, but the best way to pee in a wedding dress is backwards.  have someone hold your dress in the back and walk facing the wall where the toilet is then stoop.  hopefully you won’t have to go #2.  i don’t know how one would do that.

Plan B is NOT birth control.  The BC pill basically stops your ovaries from producing eggs.  Plan B, on the other hand, is only meant to be taken if you’ve had unprotected sex or think you may conceive without wanting to, and it then creates a thick (gross, sorry) mucus around your egg to create a barrier that the sperm cannot penetrate, basically preventing pregnancy.  It will not impact your period whatsoever, so there’s no point in taking it for this purpose.  

If you’re not going to take some form of birth control, there isn’t much you can do but deal with having getting your period on the big day 🙁  It wouldn’t be the end of the world; just a nuisance.  Sorry I don’t have better advice!
