Ok, so…I know all about skipping your period by continually taking the pill. I was dumb and decided to NOT go on the pill because my periods are like clockwork and I was supposed to get mine a few days ago (1 1/2 weeks before wedding day). However…it didn’t happen, probably because of stress.
I am worried that I will be totally unlucky and get my period the day before the wedding and be worrying the entire day about staining my dress. I read about the DivaCup, but I haven’t used it so I’m scared of leaking. I just DON’T want to worry about that all day.
My question is...can I start the pill NOW, before I get my period, in order to skip it (or just have very light bleeding). Will that work? ANY advice will be helpful to me at this point.

I would start the pill now. Usually when I start the pill, it keeps me from getting my period. If you are using it for BC, make sure you use a backup form of protection for at least a week.

Have you ever taken the pill before? If you’re just starting now, I would not suggest starting to take it this week.
I have tried to skip my period before by taking the next month of pills and skipping the placebo, but all that happens is I get an extra long light period which is even more uncomfortable than just getting it over with.
My wedding is next week as well and my period came a bit late this month, even though I’m not stressed out. I think it’s late because of stress and should come in the next couple days.

Totally TMI, but I had a great idea. My fiance and I just tried to “knock it down” if you know what I mean….and IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL! I am sure it was late because of all my stress AND my worrying about it not coming didn’t help much either. PHEW!
