    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.

    Good luck!

    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!!!
