    My doctor told me that I could just skip the inactive birth control pills, and continue with my active pills, and that would suppress the monthly visitor!

    I’m messing around with my bc pills so I don’t get my “friend” on the wedding day or the honeymoon

    I have no idea!! I worry about this. My cycle is unpredictable (I am not on BC, FH has had a vasectomy) so I honestly don’t know. Some months it comes a week earlier than the month before- December it was the 25th but this month it was the 20th- and my wedding is August 20th! I will die if I get my period the day of my wedding. And so will someone else because I imagine I’ll kill them.

    Yes, just as KendraJ said, I don’t think I will actually be on it, but if it ended up I was I’d just keep taking active pills for that month. You might still get some symptoms but they shouldn’t be as bad and you shouldn’t bleed.

    Nope, but I wouldn’t call it luck! My doctor and I timed my period with the pill to make sure it wouldn’t fall during the wedding or honeymoon.

    (If only I hadn’t checked my pills into my lost luggage so that my period came early on the honeymoon…. that’s another story though, haha)

    I’m on BC, so it’s a normal cycle, but I don’t get mine until the end of the month, so I’m in the clear! (HOPEFULLY!)

    I had finished the DAY BEFORE- so I was really lucky! Then again, I had just had my mirena put in a few weeks earlier so I was still bleeding almost all the time, but at least it wasn’t full-fledged, feeling-like-your-insides-are-falling out. I KNOW you guys know what I mean by that.

    I don’t take hormonal birth control, so if it happened I would deal. Luckily, it looks like Aunt Flo will miss the party. 😀

    I used my birth control to change when it was coming so I didn’t have it for my wedding.  I’m so glad I had this option!

    I’m on the pill, and I’ve actually sat down with a calendar to scope it out, ha!  It looks like my wedding should fall in the middle of the monthly cycle, so I should be in the clear.

    I was supposed to but I’m on the pill so I just changed my cycle.

    I got SO lucky. My “friend” showed up the day after, totally unexpectedly.
