Ugh, no advice for you but this sucks. I actually just skipped my BC this month because I am trying to change my cycle. I counted the days and figured out I would be getting my period the day of my wedding. Not ok!!!

Just remember that it won’t ruin the day.

What crayola said.  Just take BC straight through, you should be fine.

I know the feeling, so you’re not alone.   My period is late as well.  If I don’t it get within the next couple of days, I’ll be bleeding on my wedding day, too.  Boo 🙁

Aw man, that sucks!  I i’m in the situation you were, meaning my period is right before the wedding.  At first it was scheduled to end 2 days before the wedding.  Then it was late a couple of days, so now the last day is wedding day.  I hope it doesn’t scoot into the honeymoon.  Trying to avoid stress (which I heard may delay ovulation and thus delay your period) to avoid that.  But at least you’re on BC, so you can control it to an extent.  Not me. *shrugs*

I could have written this post. My last 2 periods were a whole week late and now if the next one is as late, i’ll be due on my wedding date. Joy.

@mtnhoney:  You can always try some blue cohosh tea from an herbalist.  🙂

yeah I would advise take BC straight through….althou it probably will screw up your future cycles for a little while but at least it won’t mess up your big day schedule…

I can’t imagine going through the wedding AND dealing with period at the same time…

The early, late… or NOT AT ALL thing most definitely is because of the stress / excitement that your body is picking up from you as you plan the wedding / get nearer to THE BIG DAY

As the others have said, if you are on BC, then “altering” the date is easy enough, and usually very reliable (Spotting is still better than the worse case scenario)

Lol, when you get to my age, and are perimenopausal, there is NO predictability what-so-ever… and as BC Pills aren’t in the mix any longer… not much one can do to send Aunty Flo away if she is determined to be present at the Wedding or Honeymoon

Oh well… Mr TTR has been with me for 7 Years, so he is very familiar with this part of my life… and if it decides to show up, then we’ll cope.

Just another great reason I love the guy.

My period was supposed to be with me on our wedding day, and then for our entire honeymoon in November. I’m not having any of that, so I altered my cycle with my BC pills.

Ugh that really sucks :(. 

Psycho that I am, I counted out my cycle over a year out and then adjusted my pills so that it wouldn’t be during the wedding or honeymoon. 

Maybe it still won’t come for a few days and you could possibly be in the clear for your honeymoon? But when you aren’t on the pill it can be SO unpredictable ugh. Plus wedding stress is likely affecting your cycles too.

My cycle has been working its way backward for the last few months so I was SO excited I wasn’t going to be on it like I thought it would! Of course this month it was NINE days late! 9! Ugh! Of course now i have no doubt it will be here right on time for the wedding. I totally know how you feel.  Arg
