cycles are “usually” a set range, mine is 25 days.  so most women do not have a cycle on the same date, because months flucuate from 28-31 days.  

 

but no, it wasn’t a factor for choosing our date.

I didn’t even think of that. I am on the pill so she comes when I tell her to.

andixlyn:  Lol, not a reason to schedule our wedding appropriately, but I get the concern. She always happens to pop up on a fun vacation or an important wedding day… Grrrr…

I never really gave it thought. I don’t mean to be gross, but, FI never minded if I was menstruating.

I thought it stopped the one time and I realized I bled on him early in our relationship after finishing up. I immediately started apologizing profusely and ran into the bathroom to take a shower, still mortified. 

He came and checked on me, asking if I was okay, and was like,”Baby, it’s fine. It’s only blood. It’s not a big deal.” From there on out, he kinda just said he didn’t mind and that’s what towels were for. XD

DewB59:  Lol, I did not think about this when setting a date. I did think about it afterwards though, I’m just planning on continuing the next pack if I’m unlucky in that way (I’m on the pill).

DewB59:  um, nope….Aunt Flo had zero to do with it. You can always change your cycle on your own with BC pills anyway.

I have the copper IUD as well, and this is definitely a factor in picking a date!  I’m a lot less aware of exactly when it comes every month.  I should start tracking it.

MissFormaldehyde:  your story made me laugh bc thats pretty much exactly what happened to me (and my now DH) very, very early in our relationship. Except we were at a hotel with white white sheets and the whitest duvet cover ever and…sigh. I was mortified and there he was just chillaxing… The scene in the shower -> the same. And the new use for towels too. 🙂

DewB59:  oops I meant to tag you in my previous post. Now that I think about it…yes, I did do some quick math and realized I’d be on my first week of the pill pack so I was “safe” for those days. And then I thought I’d be good for our entire honeymoon except I forgot to do the math there and at the end of our month long trip we were visiting his parents and I had to enlist my brand new MIL’s help to get a refill on my pills…another story for another thread. Lol.

DewB59:  Haha not a silly question, it totally makes sense why you’d want to factor this in! Thankfully i’m on the pill so if it happens to fall on our wedding/honeymoon i’ll skip it (aside from the not getting pregnant factor, this is the best part of being on the pill!)

I wouldn’t encourage you to go on the pill purely for that reason though if you’re not already on it. The nerves/stress etc. leading up to the wedding may cause your body to act a bit unusually in that regard anyway so it’s hard to know exactly but if does come, don’t let it spoil your day! It is what it is, i’m sure there have been a LOT of brides in the same situation 😉
