So I was on birth control for about 4.5 years and after deciding I didnt want to keep putting hormones into my body I have been off for almost 2 years. My period is pretty regular but stress does affect it (and I am guessing I will be stressed before the wedding!) I also get mittelschmerz when I am ovulating, which is as painful as my period. I dont want to have to deal with either the ovulating pain or my period around wedding time so I am thinking of going back on the pill a few months before the wedding so I can skip my period the wedding month if needed and then going off after the wedding. I am thinking if I start taking it 3 months before the wedding that will be enough time to adjust to the hormones. Do you think this is a bad idea??

I think it’s a good idea and would do the same if I were you! I would be mindful of the fact that BC can change your weight and cup size, so make sure you have at least one fitting after being on the pill for a couple of weeks!

I am doing the exact same thing you are! I was on BC and got off it for the same reasons. After doing the math, I realized I will be on my period the day of my wedding!! So, I am definitely going back on it to avoid having my period, I think its a great idea, especially since you plan on stopping after the wedding. (I am still undecided.)

@FutureMrsJohnston: Glad to hear someone else is doing the same thing!
@CityBearBride: Thats a good idea. I am just hoping that if I go back on the same one I was using before which didn’t make me gain weight, I will still not have any weight gain this time.
