I’m curious as I’m debating if I should stop my BC after this week’s pack or wait until the next one to stop taking them.
Basically, I’ll have AF next week. If I start taking another pack, I’ll be done AF 2 weeks before the wedding. I’m wondering if I stop it this month, if I’ll have my period when I’m suppose to or will it be all wonky because it’s the first month off BC.
Can someone help or give me opinions.
Should I take one more pack to garantie that my AF will come when suppose to and not have to worry about having it for the wedding or should I stop?

I stopped, got AF about 4 days later, as is typical. It came almost exactly 1 mth later, so my body didn’t take any time getting back to normal.
I wasn’t expecting this either, but it was WAY shorter and much less painful than it was while on BC. I always thought my BC was lessening my PMS/flow but I guess not :S
Just to be on the safe side, I’d wait until after the wedding to stop though, since you don’t know for sure how you’ll react. What if you got a huge pimple right before the wedding??? ACK!

I voted take one more pack. When I stopped my BCP back in March, I got my withdrawal period as usual. Then I got my next period the exact same day I would have gotten it had I stayed on the pill. The next cycle, however, it was a few days late.
So many things could happen to YOUR body, though. I have a friend who went off the pill around the same time I did – she STILL hasn’t gotten her period!! And no, she’s not pregnant.

I also voted take one more! I’m not stopping mine for another week or so, but two different friends stopped recently, and one of them bled pretty consistently for like a month (just spotting, but pretty annoying if you’re trying to get married!) while the other had severe mood swings like a crazy person — breaking into tears for no reason, etc.
Haha best not rock the boat with the wedding so close!!!
