If it’s supposed to start in that day the stress might throw it off!

I worked my period around my wedding with birth control. If you talk to your doctor they can give you short-term birth control to delay it.

katy498:  I have a mirena and am having the same problem! Fortunately my periods are light so if I do end up having it, it will be the tail end of it and hopefully next to nothing. Good luck!

hi!, my sister experienced it , but luckily several days before the DAY, she drinks a lot of soda, and it works! like she just finished her period only in 2days.

i dont know if its just a myth or something. but it works for my sis 🙂

don’t drink soda! The sodium and sugar in that will bloat you!! I have never heard of such a thing!

Yeah, I’m gonna go with “no” on the soda thing.

I got mine the week of my wedding, but I think due to all the activity and running around it was super super light!  Hopefully the same will be for you.  Maybe be extra mindful of what you are eating and try to drink a lot of water to keep the acne at bay.

I have Nexplanon (implant) and doc said I could take pills to help regulate the irregular spotting caused by the implant. Doc said it’s safe to take them both since the dosage on Nexplanon is so low. The pills changed my usual cycle time also, thank god cause I didn’t want to be spotting on a beach vacation.

Not sure if it may work with Skyla, but I would assume why not if you ask about some low dosage pills? I would try to consult your doctor anyways to see if there are any options, or anything he can do for relief of symptoms. I would imagine changing pads/tampons would be a pain if you’re a heavy bleeder/wearing a big ball gown. Best of luck!

I have hears good things about taking calcium and magnesium supplements leading up to your period to help alleviate some symptoms. I am testing that theory right now, I will report back haha.

I also just picked these up:

and

 

http://www.amazon.com/Vitanica-Womens-Premenstrual-Support-Capsules/dp/B004WPBYI6?ie=UTF8&*Version*=1&*entries*=0

 

They have a good blend of herbs that are supposed to really help. I started taking the Aunt Flo one yesterday so I’ll try it through this cycle and see what happens. I’ll try the Vitanica one next time.

Here is something else I use leading up to my period sometimes what really helps me:

http://www.amazon.com/Fitmiss-Tyte-Supplement-60-Count/dp/B00LWQESZY/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=hpc&ie=UTF8&qid=1464975120&sr=1-1&keywords=tyte+fitmiss

You HAVE to drink at least a  gallon of water a day while taking it for it to work but it really does help shed some water weight.

Mine was due the day of the wedding. And it came, but that NIGHT.  Fortunately we had a morning wedding and reception was over by 4, so while our honeymoon was affected by it, the actually wedding day, we were clear.  I was SUPER stressed (family in hospital and all sorts of things) but the stress didn’t really affect it.  I was still super nervous about starting that day, so I used a tampon to prevent any surprise leaks.  BUT I discovered Instead Soft Cups a few weeks before the wedding and bought a pack.  It took a few tries to insert it properly, and two times I had a brief panic attack that I couldn’t get it out… But these saved my honeymoon!  You can have sex with them in (DH said he could not feel it, many agree, but I’ve heard of a few people who said the guy could feel it).  It sits super high right around your cervix (different than the Diva Cup) and I could not feel it while at rest or during sex.  For us, it gave us a mess free honeymoon!  I figured out the times I was trying to take it out where it seemed stuck were right after sex. Don’t do that.  Let your body cool off and it will lower naturally and you can take it out then.  

I had one pimple on my chin that they covered with makeup.  No big deal.

I was also scared about bloating because my dress already barely fit.  I kept my alcohol to a minimum at the Rehearsal Dinner and the whole week prior drank lots of water and watched my sodium intake.  Not much else you can do.  My dress ended up fitting! Phew.

Fortunately DH was super understanding about the whole thing despite me crying about it a lot the week before the wedding.  It will be okay!!!
