hmm start birth control today? That would be my only suggestion, but it’s a little late for that. But if you started pills TODAY it would definitely be gone in 5 days.

I’ve been manipulating my cycle with birth control for a couple of months now so I’ll get it 2 weeks before my wedding.

very likely that you didn’t even ovulate due to extra stress of the wedding, and so your period won’t come for quite some time.

ETA: since you’re not on BC, then if you had been charting you would know almost down to the day what day your period would come! Unfortunately it’s a little too late for that… but good luck! Even if it does come, don’t let your wedding day be ruined by it! There are far worse things that could happen…

I didn’t have issues with blood clots (thank GOD!) but I do think that the PCOS that I have that’s been lurking in the background kicked in when I started messing with hormones.  In some respects I wish I’d never tried BC, but then in others I’m glad because now I know so much more about my body (things like why I have hair that grows on my chest, why it’s so hard for me to lose weight, the fact that I have genes that give me a proclivity for heart trouble so I need to keep my red meat intake way down).

I have to say that if you have no other more pressing reason for going on BC, I would just take the chance of having your period happen rather then mess with your hormones.

oh yeah, I thought through this a little more. If you’re 5 days before your wedding, I’m pretty sure BC won’t change when your period is so close to the date. IF you did indeed ovulate at a normal time, or slightly delayed, and your period will come any day now, then I’m pretty sure that taking BC right now won’t make a difference for that, b/c your uterus still needs to shed it’s lining from having ovulated, and BC won’t change that.

@MRS. McCOY: Call your gyno and see what they suggest.  They can give you something to hold it off for a week or two.
