My friend had the same issue, so she just kept taking her birthcontrol the week she was supposed to take the placebo to keep her period at bay for a few days. I don’t know how that would work or what you could take if you aren’t on birth control so I would ask a doctor before making a final choice

If you’re not already on the pill I’d look into getting it. The only thing is it takes 3 months for it to fully circulate through your body and work effectively. This means it may not regulate you until the end of the 3 months. If you have more than 3 months between now and the wedding I’d say go for it. If not, I’m not sure, I haven’t heard of anything else that delays periods

In order to be able to successfully skip your period on birth control, you would probably have to start it now and continue taking it for the several months before your wedding. It takes some time for your body to adjust to it before tring to skip the inactive pills. 

I have never had any skin problems, bloating/weight gain, or hair loss with the pill. Of course, everyone is different. The only problem I had was nausea for the first three months, but you can avoid this by taking it before bedtime instead of in the morning.

Or you can do the shot.  It last for 3 months and takes 2 weeks to enter your body and take effect. After the three months its gone.  But I would get it a month or two before the wedding so if you like your cycle can return to normal one week after the wedding.  No breakouts, no bloating, no cravings. Especially with the newer version of the shot.

BC makes my skin *better* not worse.  It can cause cravings, but just be mindful and don’t eat more (easier said than done!).  I love the 3-month on, 1-week off pill since I hate my period.  It’s awesome.  When I re-start it I do get a little spotting for most of the 1st three months (usually not even enough for a liner), but none after that.

I love the BCP.  I don’t think a wedding is the time to try anything different though.  If you want to do something to alter your cycle, I would talk to your doctor now.  Then you can decide if you’ll take something for a short term to alter your cycle, not bother with anything, or stay on something for a while.

@ace_craze:  Yay!

Incidently, I still found I suffered from cramping and stuff when I took a delaying pill (no idea what it was called but only took it for 2 weeks), the nights were the worse.  So glad yours has adjusted.

So let me preface this by saying that I have annovulatory cycles and SUPER LONG gaps with no periods. Guess when AF arrived?? The day after the wedding… on the first day of our honeymoon. Yep. HONEYMOON PERIOD. Literally.

I was scheduled to get mine on our Honeymoon, so my gyno told me to just keep taking my pills straight through. It kept my period from coming, but I will say I was crazy pms for 2 weeks before my next period. Like…couldn’t get my pants up over my bloat and crying hysterically pms. It was not fun, but at least I didnt have to bring tampons to Costa Rica.
