I’d go ahead and just keep take two pills today and then keep taking one everyday, use condoms and hope for the best :/

I would go ahead like usual when you get to the sugar pills, just start another pack and you shouldn’t have a period or a very light one.  I used to do that all the time back in the days when I had to take them.  Worked like a charm.

I think since you took the first 2 albeit late, then double 2s after that, it should be fine.  Now pregnancy protection could be compromised, but I think you are way more concerned about skipping your period…  I think since it’s early in the month you will have time for the hormones to be somewhat normal by the end.  I’m sure that’s the last thing you thought you’d have to worry about this month!  Sorry!  I would definitely not do the second option.  That gives you no hint of control whatsoever.

I’d also just take the pills as you planned.  The first week of a pack the hormone levels are really low, so it’s *less* likely that you’ll have spotting because you missed one.  And this way you can get yourself back on track.

Other pill advice – set an alarm on your cell phone for the time you take your pills.  Much harder to miss them that way.  Also, I was a Sunday starter, but I always got my period on Wednesdays and it lasted until Sunday.  Boo to that (who wants their period on the weekend if they don’t have to?)  So I moved it up, and now I’m a Friday starter, meaning I have my period Monday-Friday and then it’s gone.  Totally possible to do (though maybe not this month since you’re already off-track).  Good luck!

Keep taking your pills continuously, but if you don’t want to get pregnant, use a male or female condom as back-up.

Definetely take the pills the way you originally planned. Just pick up where you left off doubling up is not a big deal. I’ve been on the pill 5 years and have done it several times. If you do this your plan should work just fine and you should be period free for your wedding.

It depends on your body, I think. Have you ever tried to skip your period before? Whenever I tried it, I would still get my period but it would be lighter and longer. 🙁 For some people, skipping the sugar pills and starting the next pack works like a charm. I’m unlucky and it just totally screws with my body. Good luck to you though (and don’t forget to use condoms. Better safe than sorry if you’re using it as BC)!
