3 months should be plenty of time to start BC.  You can delay your period by skipping the inactive pills or pill-free weeks and going straight through your honeymoon.  Your withdrawal bleed will then be delayed until you next have a pill-free week.  If you do decide to do this though, do it sooner rather than later because you can get side effects from the pill.  I got terrible migraines (which obviously would be less than ideal on your wedding day) and on a lesser scale some people get things like acne.  Better to find out while there’s still a chance for it to clear up before you get married.

Yep I do this on BC.  My doc says it’s not really necessary to ever have a period.  Though I think the spotting gets heavier if I go too long without doing a week of sugar pills.  Going 3-4 months is cake though.


Agree with PP about starting sooner than later.  It’s possible you will have to adjust your BC after you try one or a few to get the hormones just right for you.

I have delayed periods successfully by drinking spearmint tea. It delays the period by delaying ovulation. If ovulation has already happened, the AF will be visiting 14 days later no matter what. The spearmint tea works before ovulation.

Try it. Go buy some spearmint tea and drink two cups a day. I actually figured this out the hard way. i started drinking one cup a day to try to clear up zits I get when my period is looming. Imagine my surprise when my period was 3 weeks later. I didn’t make the connection though. Then the next month, it didn’t come at all. I started googling and realized it was the damn tea!

I have told many firends about this and they all drink the tea before ovulation happens (and after, just in case) and it ALWAYS works. You can delay your period without taking BC pills in a safe way. You have plenty of months to try it. Go ahead. I bet it’ll work.

BC is the only way to ensure you won’t have AF on your wedding day and your honeymoon.  Although you could get lucky and ovulate really late due to the stress of the wedding.

@beachbride1216:  That’s not necessarily true. Spearmint tea is an option.


@MeiFrancis:  Yup, and it’s kinda crazy bc only one or two cups a day does the trick.

I also was scheduled to have it during my wedding day/honeymoon and I absolutely refused.  I talked to my GYN and she gave me 3 months of BC samples and I used those (I was able to use them and still keep in my IUD).  I started 6 weeks before my wedding…the first month, I had a bit of breakthrough bleeding but was perfectly fine after that.

The only downside…it really made me a bit crazy…like seriously.  Between the stress of the wedding and having your hormones messed with, it was no joke for a while.  It was also a little rough coming off of them too but all in all, totally worth it to not have it.
