    I got my period the second day of our carabean honeymoon.  Pain in the ass- yes.  Problem, no.  I found a whole lot of other things to do with my husband. 😉

    I think the only fool-proof method to schedule your period is BC pills (which have their own issues). IUDs aren’t necessarily going to stop your period (I spotted 4 months after getting mine inserted, then stopped having them for a year, now I’m back to regular monthly cycles), and depo is not good.

    Speak with your doctor about your options.

    I had mine on my wedding day, yes it did suck but I just touched it out and still had a good day. Saying that, I have been prescribed something before called Northisterone which delays your period – you take it 3 times a day three days before your period is due and continue to take it three times a day until you want your period back (it usually comes bk around 3-7 days later). Its *not* birth control though so you’ll need to use other contraception. I’ve taken it before when I’ve been due my period at the start of a holiday & it must be prescribed by a doctor ( im from the UK but assume it’s the same everywhere) 

    Saying that, I wouldn’t necessarily advocate trying a new medication on your wedding day – you never know how you might react or feel. I think if you can handle it then just tough it out with some pain killers.

    You can plan ahead and try a menstrual cup. I have not tried them myself, but you can wear them all day and have sex with them in.

    Just wanted to mention that, personally, I switched from Nuva Ring(which is a combo of estrogen & pro.) to nexplanon (no estrogen, all pro) and my face went HAYWIRE. My gyno figured out that I need estrogen, so depo/IUD/nexplanon weren’t good options for me because they didn’t offer estrogen. On top of that, some people on pro only methods get very, very irregular periods/very frequent spotting or periods. I say go with what you know if you had no complaints and after the wedding look into IUDs if you want a longer term option.

    Another vote for Northisterone. Thats my plan, and seeing as I’m a few weeks out, I’m pretty confident I will be putting it into motion. Already talked to my doc and picked it up.

    THe problem is that eveyone’s body responds to hormones differently.  I have heard horror stories about Nexplanon but I LOVE mine.  I haven’t had anything more than spotting since I had it put in.  Glorious.

    mountainviews:  Just curious, but how long before your period was supposed to start did you take plan be to delay it?

    Lyssie:  what did you end up deciding on? I’m in the same boat. Stopped taking bc pills because I hated the chemicals in my body and all the side effects. But I really REALLY don’t want to deal with my period on my wedding & honeymoon. I’m set to start bc pills on Monday and my doctor is confident that I’ll be able to manipulate my cycle a little. I’m still a little skeptic and worried though. My wedding is about 4 mos away
