- Wedding: May 2012
So, I am beyond pissed right now. My dad lost his job, which means I loose my health insurance, I’m not currently employed as I’m a student, and I can’t get Tricare (Army insurance) insurance until Fiance leaves for training in November. Our last day of health insurance is May 1, so I just refilled my last pack of BCP (lo estrin 24 fe) today. Problem: 4 weeks, my period will be Thurs- Sun May 23-27. My WEDDING is May 26, this will be sucky, big time. Though, this shouldn’t be a huge problem as the BCP i’m on I don’t really get periods, most months I have nothing, some months I may have max of 1 day of light spotting that’s it. But still now that’s another worry to throw on my plate.
Even bigger worry though, is since we loose health insurance, we would have to pay a butt load of money to stay on this pill, about $70ish I think. So instead, I will now have to switch to a generic BCP either like 3 days before my wedding, or the day before my honeymoon. THIS IS SOOO NOT COOL!! I am pissed that now instead of getting to enjoy my honeymoon, and all that goes with it I will be adjusting to a new BCP, which could bring mood swings, spotting, acne etc. and I will have to continue to use condoms (we were originally not going to use on the honeymoon since well I’m on bcp). I am just soo upset, that I have to switch, this bcp was awesome, and I had no side effects, but there is no identical generic for it, so I have to completely switch right before my wedding/ honeymoon. Any ideas or suggestions of generic bcp. I’ve been looking up simmilar ones. I just don’t know what else to do. Sorry this is so long, i’m just freaking out and need any help/ advice on what to do.
