Nope no way of moving your period unless you are on hormonal birth control and even then you can get breakthrough bleeding and spotting.  You might want to start taking Advil or another NSAID a few days before your period starts so that it is in your system before your cramps start up really badly.

I feel your pain!

I had my period the week of my wedding, and as fate had it, we honeymooned three weeks later and I got it again at the end of that.  

Just be sure to avoid stuff like sodas and drinking water actually does help me a lot.  It’s not fun, but it’s not the end of the world =)

LOL – OK, sorry not laughing at you, but you sound just like me a few months ago! Mine is usually around mid-month as well, but for some freaky dumb reason my body went ape-crap in October and I started on the 2nd (lots of stress I think) and I was FREAKING out!!! I had intentionally planned my wedding so I wouldn’t be on it during that time and BAM! Just like that… I was hysterical and even cried about it to (now) hubby!

As it turned out, I ended up starting on like the 30th or the 1st, so there were still a few days in there before my actually wedding, and most of the bad stuff had stopped by then. But yeah, I totally understand where you’re coming from.

That happened to me too!  But it started before the wedding and stopped the day of, so it wasn’t so bad.  I was mostly glad it went away for the honeymoon!!

you could try the birth control shot (Depo Provera) – when I had it I stopped getting my period. You get one shot and it lasts 3 months

Oh no! What strength of BC were you taking that gave you migraines? Could you try a lower dose possibly?

Ugh..sorry that is happening to you!

As crazy as it sounds, one of the reasons I picked my wedding date is because I won’t have my period for it..for for the two weeks of the honeymoon..the pill makes it easier though b/c I pretty much know when I am going to get it down to the hour!

I would look into the shot though if you really don’t want to deal with it!

@ azula – about the depo shot. I would do some research on that before you took it just to stop your period. That shot is famous for causing weight gain, and that is something you DEFINATELY do not want especially on your wedding!!! The period would be MUCH better to deal with than the several lbs of weight that shot would put on you.
