I’m not worrying about it because if it does fall on our wedding or honeymoon I’ll just start my next pack of bc pills and skip my “friend” all together for that month…that way no problems to worry about!

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn’t happen!  My period doesn’t really come at the exact time every month so it’s kind of a crap shoot!  Are you on the pill?  If so, you should be able to skip your period that month by not taking the placebo pills and just continuing with a new pack.

thats what I have done (Soon2beeMrsM) I have calcualted my birth control so that I will not be on mine during the wedding or for the honeymoon. Birth control is very nice in that way.

@Min- I know it rocks. I hate to skip mine because I feel like we obviously have it for a reason but it’s my wedding day and honeymoon, it would but SUCH a damper on EVERYTHING IMO and I don’t want to have to carry a purse when I’m out on our honeymoon rock climbing or anything because I need a tampon lol.

I am on the pill, but I honestly didn’t want to mess with moving my period.  It was my “week” but it was the very end, and it was pretty much gone the night before (my cycle is sunday start) and my wedding was saturday.  We went on our honeymoon three weeks later, so it came again at the end but it was just fine. =)

yup, basically you’d look at a calendar, and your cycle is set to come every 28 days..so backtrack to find out when you should start =)

Prncssdiva – do you happen to be on birth control pills? I am, and when I realized I was going to be on my period during my honeymoon, I was able to use the pill to change my period schedule. It is NOT a good idea to do this frequently (not good to mess with mother nature and hormones TOO much) but I consulted my OBGYN and she explained that if I just do it once to postpone my period by a week, it won’t be harmful.
