So I may be getting my period on my wedding day. My period is very irregular (always few days late) and there may be a chance I will get it on my wedding date which is next month Dec 29. So do you guys have any natural “remedies” to make ur period come later. Im hoping my period will be late this month at least by 6 days so I will be in the clear for at least my wedding date. ….
The reason I don’t want my period is cause I’m wearing sheath wedding dress n my fear is I will bleed thru or ull see the pad underneath n honestly I think it will just ruin my night lol so any suggestions?

if you are on the pill just skip the placebos.
Otherwise do you normally bleed through? Use a tampon and change regularly?

Do you have to wear a pad, rather than a tampon? I was on my period for my wedding and I wore a fitted short sheath dress and had no problems. But I didn’t wear a pad so I didn’t have to worry about it showing.

If you really want to not have your period you can go to your GP and get a tablet. I don’t remember what it’s called but I know it exists.

Large tampons and lots of anti inflammatories good luck! Stupid periods

angabe26 : Get pregnant! Jk(; How do you feel about a menstrual cup? You could give it a trial this month? It’s different for everyone but mine is leakproof. So you could do that + a panty liner just to be safe? Or just check tampons regularly and maybe wear spandex under for an added seamless layer? Also, my midwife told me that if you take ibuprofen when on your period it cuts the amount of bleeding in half… not sure how true that is but it’s worth a shot!

I don’t know about natural ways like you ask, however I do know if you go to your gp you can get a pill to delay your period.

I’d worry about a pad for sure. Tampons are the way to go, and change often – make sure you’re not wearing anything under your dress that makes this too difficult!

Totally feel you. My periods were irregular and heavy, so having mine on my wedding day would have been a nightmare. Personally, I’d go to the doctor and ask about that pill that delays it (they even give it to girls going on school trips), so you have peace of mind.

(Should have said that I say ‘were’ as I’m on the mini pill so don’t have periods anymore. Best decision ever!)

Talk to your doctor about getting a pill to stop it, such as skipping placebos. But you’ll want to start in advance. An old wives tale that has some backing is to eat limes. The acidic nature helps your uterus shed faster which can shorten or even prevent your period. The old wives tale told women not to eat many limes so they wont skip a period (why wouldn’t we want to skip it though, right?). I found this after a few weeks of a lemon and lime juice obsession. A few weeks after drinking the juice daily I got the lightest, 2 day period. Mine are always 6-7 days and heavy the first few days. There is some science backing it. I stopped the limes and got my regular flow the next month.

Take the pill and skip it, you can always stop using the pill again after the wedding day if you’re not keen on using it long term

angabe26 : another cup user here (love it!!!), but I would caution that it took me several months to really get good at using it and go a whole period without any leaks, so personally I wouldn’t recommend it now since you’re only a month or so out. I agree with others, try to use the pill and as a back up, tampons + thinx thong underwear (meant to catch leaks) + spanx layer.

+1 for menstrual cup – I don’t even know what I did before I had my Diva Cup. I only use liners for the very end of my cycle when I’m really just spotting, otherwise I live and die by the cup.

Tampon + panty liners! If there’s slight leakage, the liner will protect your dress.
