If it’s due on your wedding day. I would skip the sugar pills once.  Don’t do it two times in a row or you risk having breakthrough bleeding.

I would only skip them once as well.  The longer you skip the placebos, the more likely you are to have breakthrough bleeding.  I would consider going on a different type of BC since taking it so irratically won’t really help with preventing pregnancy.  I love the Nuvaring, it’s very set and forget.

I’ve successfully moved my period around on the pill, but I’ve experienced breakthrough bleeding even from trying to skip one period. Skipping the placebos still moved my future period so that I didn’t have it for a vacation or whatever, and the spotting occurred during a time that it didn’t really matter. I agree with the other posters that you should only skip the placebos for one month.

I also agree with the PP that the pill may not be the best option for you if you’re unable to stick to a regular schedule with it. Good luck! 🙂

Surgar pills aren’t supposed to affect anything the only reason they are included is for your memory (so you’re programmed to take 1 pill every single day not 3 weeks and 1 week off).

I have never taken surgar pills, and my period is always regular UNLESS I take a pill late.

Just want to make sure – you’re certain you’re not currently pregnant, right? You’ve tested recently to make sure? The reason I ask is because you said you’ve been taking your pill erratically, and your normal cycle was interrupted. If you haven’t already, please test to make sure you’re not currently pregnant!
