So, I’ve tried many forms of birth control pills in the past year to find out what works best for me before our wedding. I tried Nuvaring (had EXTREME fatigue) and tried LoLoestrin( had terrible heartburn and nausea, vomitting in the middle of the night).
So, I’m now on my 4th month of Nora-be and I love it. But, now my period is due for the honeymoon. Lots of women don’t have periods on Nora-be, but I am having it on the first week of each pack. There are no placebo pills in progestin only pills.
I’m going to call my doctor’s office tomorrow, but I wanted to see if anyone here has any suggestions on how to push my period back a week. I have one pack of the loloestrin left, and I could take it for a certain amount of time to change my period date.
Anyone done this before? Thanks in advance

Hey I take the mini pill too…I know how to make my period come early lol but not the other way around. If i take one or two extra I will get it usually a month early. I have done this many time on accident!!! After I was on the mini pill 3months I started only getting my period every 2 to 3 months. The only draw back to this pill is that you kind of randomly get your period,,i mean you can tell its coming the week before but you don’t really know until then. I think your gyn can prob give you an extra pill to take for a few weeks to get you to “skip a week”.
Mini pill is the best bc pill i have ever taken though…just like you I had horrible side effects with all of the others!!

Carmela: I agree! My period on the mini pill is almost non existent than randomly it’s arrived! I can’t gage when it’s going to arrive

Peachytalk: Carmela: Thanks! I called my doctor today, I think I’m going to try taking the estrogen pill for a bit then come off of it and start the mini pill again. But I’m waiting for a call back.
