ok im kind of surprised that no one mentioned this but maybe i’m just a weirdo. i read Jenna Jameson’s(yes the pornstar) autobiography a few years back and this is something that stuck with me for whatever reason. many times an adult film actress has her period during times she is scheduled to shoot scenes. apparently they use a sea sponge inserted to soak up all the blood and not a drop comes out until the sponge is removed, which isn’t difficult from what i understand.
i was just going to suggest bc until i read you post so perhaps the sponge is something to look into.
any other bees heard of or tried this method?

I was suposed to get mine on our wedding week, but since I am on the BC pill I decided I would go ahead and change when I would get my period. instead of starting it a new pack the week after the sugar pill, I started it 2 weeks after (so i had a week of sugar pill and a week of nothing), that way I threw it off and would not get it until after week came back from our honeymoon. I was worried about it so I counted and made sure to do this about 3 months before the wedding ( we did not have much sex during that time, messing with the pill increases your chance of getting pregnant and I was parinoid about getting pregnant before the wedding but wanted to make sure I would not have my period for the wedding or the honeymoon)
you could try starting the pill now and take it strait untill after your wedding and honeymoon is done, it may push it back!! I have never heard of the SoftCup and will have to look into that!

oh and fyi, i did the whole “switcharoo” with bc pills so my period wouldnt land on a vacation and i STILL got it but i only spotted but it lasted a couple weeks! if you plan on messing with your pills i suggest you do it months and months before the event but since your wedding is so close i dont know if it will work

My husband doesn’t care about the blood. We use a dark towel when I’m on, and he wears a condom (because I’m paranoid, not because it bothers him to get blood down there). He thinks it’s weird that other people find it gross…it feels the same to him and feels good to me so why not?
Oh and PS–I also use tampons and just take mine out right before and put one in right after too 🙂
