I maybe wrong but it seems to me that if I exercise a lot before it postpones the period it also good for stress. I too worry about this since I just got min and my bridal show is tommorow and I’m wearing a white dress. Eek.

I had my period on my wedding day, and it was totally fine. I have to admit that I had a very forgiving dress silhouette, so I wasn’t worried about bloating. But my skin totally shit the bed, and my bridesmaid did an amazing coverup job. Also, I was so incredibly stressed out that I basically didn’t have a period at all, the flow was so light! Yay/ugh!

For your skin, do you get break outs in one spot generally?  I do, so I pretreat my skin with pure tea tree oil.  I just dab it on (my chin area) when my skin would usually break out.  If I use it daily it is too drying, but if I just use it for that week or so, it is fine and my skin stays clear.

katy498:  No, I just get one from the health food store, locally.  🙂  If you go to one near you, it should be a pretty “clean” product.  I would stay away from the drug store varieties though.  You just never know what else might be in there.  And eat super clean!  Too much sugar especially os bad for you skin.  And lots of water.  🙂

I’m due a week after the wedding (on my honeymoon, womp womp) and am also on mirena.  I’m so worried about breaking out and being extra irrationality emotional on my wedding day.

 

My dress is super forgiving so not worried on that end. Just trying to drink lots of water and avoid alcohol in the days prior.

I just recently got married on May 21st and was a virgin on our wedding night.  And thanks to getting my period just after the reception, I remained a virgin for a few more nights.  Fortunately, I didn’t feel like I was too bloated for the wedding.  I was so nervous the week before the wedding that I didn’t eat much…I also tried to exercise and sit in the steam room (which always helps my skin) that week. That probably helped decrease my bloating.  You could also try an over-the-counter diuretic as long as it’s not contraindicated with any other medical issues/medications you take.  Eating grapefruit is also supposed to act as a mild diuretic.

katy498:  you should talk to your doctor there are other ways you can induce your period or postpone it, other than birth control.

I can’t personally vouch for this or how good it is for your body, but I have a friend who takes emergency contraception (Plan B) if she wants to throw off her cycle and basically make her period come early. She just got married a few months ago and did it as a kind of preventative measure to make her period come a couple weeks before her wedding. I used to work in a PP clinic, so I can vouch for the fact that it’s basically a super high dose of hormones that generally does cause you to bleed a bit and can throw your cycle off for a month or two.

brigk:  Please tell your friend NEVER to do this!!! It is TERRIBLE for your body and can lead to all sorts of issues… There are many other safer ways to delay your period.

That sucks! I hope your period waits until after hte wedding to come, but if not I highly recommend using a diva cup as protection over pads or tampons. I’ve been using them for years and have never experienced a leak! I even had it in for 8 hours on a heavy day and to be honest I totally forgot I was even on my period! It won’t prevent the problem, but it will do a damn good job of taking care of it while you focus on your wedding!

EnglishGardenGirl:  mine also came the night of, which made me laugh hysterically, as I was soooo late and so stressed w feeling rubbish owing to PMS. I’d lost loads of weight but just felt bloated, nauseous and sick. All I can suggest is to drink plenty of water and take herbal diuretics to relieve bloat. It does suck. Hugs, op! X

I’m not sure how taking Plan B to induce period is any more harmful than taking a 7 day regimen of estrogen (aka akipping the placebo week in BC pills) to delay period?

OP, I was going to suggest either an oral estrogen supplement from your gyne to delay it or Plan B to hopefully induce your period early. Its not a great habit of course but I think “long term damage” is a bit much. Its a form of progestin, which is the same hormone as Mirena and Nexplanon use.

Or, if you’d rather go the non-hormonal route, I second PP’s suggestion of soft cups! I use them almost exclusively while on my period and Fiance has only mentioned one time that he could feel it in the almost four years we’ve been together, and it was after the fact so it clearly didn’t bother him too much at the time haha.
