All you have to do is skip the white placebo pills & just go into your next pack.  You might spot a touch, but shouldn’t get your period.

Unfortunately for me, I am not on birth control & it’s too late to start, so I will be having my period on the wedding day & probably for the duration of the honeymoon.  Sexy!

Yes, just skip the placebo pills. After the 3rd (active) week of pills, start the next pack right away. I’ll be doing this during my honeymoon…

I would talk with your doctor before you skip any of the placebo pills.  Most often, it’s okay if you are on a monophasic regimen (all the tablets are the same strength).  It may be different as you are on a triphasic (ortho tri-cyclen lo – 3 different strengths) pack.  In 5+ years in a pharmacy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a physician approve skipping the placebo pill on a non-monophasic regimen :/  I would definitely call your doctor, just to get the most accurate information 🙂

Talk with your doctor; mine said we can move it around as long as we discuss it a few months before the big day. No worries you wont have a stain!

Since I am on the pill, I would just skip my period if I knew it would be on my wedding day lol. You can totally do it and it’s completely safe (well, depends on your pill, I guess. I would talk to you doctor). I’m on alesse and I’ve skipped my period before. I only do it when it’s a really inopportune time to have it (like going camping or something) and it’s always worked perfectly for me.

This happened to me and (TMI ahead) it was my worst flow day too! I ended up fine. My sister (bless her heart) helped me out in the bathroom and no one was the wiser.  Just know that it has and can be done, plus you are so busy that day that you won’t even think about it!

I am skipping mine at this very moment because I am in my friend’s wedding this weekend (hahah sorry if TMI!). I also take ortho and have skipped in many times in the 7 years I’ve been taking it with no problems at all. My mom is a doc and says it’s fine. I def don’t do it all the time though, but in this situation…i think it’s ok!

ABSOLUTELY talk to your doctor before doing this. Ortho tri-cyclen is NOT a monophasic pill and going straight through to the next pack could potentially really mess you up.
