What kind of pill are you on?

Hi there,

I have done this and never had any break through bleeding or problems. Since everyone is different and if you are worried about breakthrough bleeding I would tack on a week this month so then your next periods are all pushed ahead a week.

I have skipped my period before by simply starting the next week of active pills instead of the placebo.  I never had issues with spotting,  but that is obviously not a gaurantee for you.  If you’re worried about spotting specifically I would just skip this month to put you a week ahead.  As long as you have a monophasic pill you should be fine doing it this way.  I dont see the poitn in skipping all your placebos until the wedding,  that seems to be inviting spotting.

Woops didn’t read this post fully…

I haven’t done it where I took my pills everday continuously for months. I have only skipped one month before and never had any problems doing that!

If you want to do it the seasonlly way I would talk to your doctor!

I am on BC continuously and I spot sometimes but not much.  I used to take Seasonique (where you have 4 periods a year) and Lybrel (where you get none) and I’m now skipping off weeks with Nuvaring.  So you can do that with any pill that has the same dose in every pill.  I don’t know if you want to skip 3 packs worth of placebos though.  Once or twice should be enough to move your period away from your wedding date.  And do it soon so you will be regulated by the wedding.

I wouldn’t skip months continuosly on end, why not just skip one month? 2 months max if you are worrying about honeymoon? I say this because the more you disrupt your normal cycle the more likely you are to get breakthrough bleeding. For instance, I am on Seasonique, so it’s extended cycle normally and I only get my period every 3 months. But I had breakthrough bleeding for the first YEAR on that pill as my body adjusted. So if you just skip your period until the wedding I fear you will be more likely to have breakthrough bleeding.Every one’s body is different, so you may not, but it is a pain so I wouldn’t risk it!

@Creasetul:  If you have been pretty regular with the pill, you might still end up getting your period even if you skip the placebos for the wedding.  It would probably be easier to skip placebos now and just move the period date and not worry about any breakthrough at the wedding.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy:  Agree with this 100%.

and OP, don’t be fooled, “breakthrough bleeding” can sometimes be (it was for me) as heavy as a regular period.

Ditto on the skipping now.  Your wedding isn’t the time to test you something new to you.
