Are you on birth control? If so , just take the regular pills for an extra few weeks until after your wedding. 


If you are not, talk to your OBGYN ASAP and she can get you on them.

Most likely, its stress related! So if you can honestly rid yourself from it ( which is hard with a wedding, haha) it might work. Some people bring on a period with stress and some people turn it off. If you find you always get it with major events, you probably are a person who brings it on.

If your on lets say bc pills, you could take them continuous , but that always leeds to spotting, which is basically like having a period, so its not super effective!

I’ve read about taking vitamin C (like, a pill every 6 hours or so) to help bring it on, or if you’re more adventurous, you can do something with either parsley tea or a sprig or parsley.. up there… I never tried that because it sounded pretty gross, but you could try googling it? I dunno if it was the vitamin C or just time, but if I’m late due to stress, etc. it usually starts a day or so after I start taking the vitamin C. 🙂

I can’t remember if I actually read this or dreamt it, but I heard that delaying a period causes a lot of discomfort for people who arent used to it, so it’s better to make the period come earlier.  I think there is a shot of hormones that a gynecologist can give you to induce your period.  Again, double check this information because I really dont know if I dreamt this actually read it.

I have some odd advice – growing up with 2 sisters sometimes our cycles would effect eachother. Same with my Cross Country team. THIS is NOT scientific at all but do you have a girlfriend that is on her period right now? You could hang out maybe have a sleepover – and it could speed up your period!.HAHA I know this is ridiculous but MAYBE it could work : )

OK, so here’s some herbal things I’ve done (often successfully, if used for a few days) to bring on a late period:

Parsley tea (made with normal grocery-store parsley; I think the flat-leaf kind is stronger)

Tea made with oregano/dong quai/raspberry leaf

Dong quai capsules (don’t take dong quai once you start your period; it will make it heavier and crampier).

All these herbs are pretty powerful menstruation-inducers/uterine stimulants. If your uterine lining is on the edge of being ready, these will almost certainly work if you use enough (find an herbal medicine book to advise you on dosages; Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Healing for Women, and books by Susun Weed are good).

Otherwise– if you’re on the pill or NuvaRing, don’t use the placebo pills/don’t give yourself a ring-free week.

Sometimes, when using the herbs, doing a bunch of vigorous exercise helps to bring it on! I have also heard about taking a lot of Vit C, but have not yet tried that. Good luck!

Just a word of caution that Vitamin C can be dangerous if taken well above the recommended daily intake (45mg/day). It can cause a lot of nasty side effects such as diarrhea, kidney stones, iron overload, acid erosin of teeth, decrease in the absorption of Vitamin B12 and has been linked to renal failure in patients with kidney problems. Also if you take 850grams/day or more then death can occur. Researchers at the Unviersity of Leicester also found that 500 milligrams/pay of Vit C can damage peoples genes (pro-oxidant effects on DNA).
