Yeah, I don’t know any way to move your period without hormones (birth control) 🙁

Take some midol and hope for the best?

Stress yourself out to make it come earlier? That’s all I have…

Without medicine, I don’t know what to suggest. As someone who has also had negative reactions to birth control, I understand where you’re coming from when you say you can’t be on it.

I would suggest you talk to your gynecologist. Explain your hesitance about BC; maybe he/she could introduce you to one with which you wouldn’t have negative effects. I don’t know if a month is really a long enough time to get your body regulated to a new med, but it wouldn’t hurt to call and talk to her/him.

Maybe try one of the birth controls that gives your period 4 times a year?? Not sure how they work but maybe it will stall yours??

@disneybride11:  Oh, rats!  I would talk to your Gyno and see if you have any other options.  I believe there is a shot where you only bleed a few times a year.  The drawback is that you are sooo close to your wedding day and your body will not be completely adjusted.  Good Luck!

I was supposed to start the day before…I ended up starting the Sunday before, so by wedding day, it was over.  You never know what your body will do because of stress!

I hate the pill and am charting, but went on the pill for 4 days to avoid getting it on my wedding day.  My doctor and I discussed taking progesterone, estrogen or the pill and we opted for the pill.  I had no side effects other than no period (some spotting during honeymoon) and it was worth it.

I would talk to your doctor and see what options there are.
