Hey! So here’s the story
I am on the pill and and getting married New Year’s Eve and we want to start trying right away basically the wedding night we will start
I don’t want to stop the pill because I don’t want to risk getting my period on my honey moon… My body is wacked off the pill..
Any suggestions? Skip a pill on the honeymoon or take it late?
And also is it safe to drink on the honeymoon (all inclusive resort) and conceive?
I know the odds of getting pregnant on the pill are little to none.. I just want the dream wedding/honeymoon but doby want to risk having my period on honeymoon

It’s pretty slim chanced to get pregnant right away even if you’re not on the pill, but if you want advice on your medication, do you think talking to a doctor might be a better idea than a bunch of women on a wedding forum?

Why would you continue taking the pill if you’re trying to conceive? Maybe I’m reading your questions wrong, but yeah, if you want to get pregnant, you need to stop taking birth control.
Honestly, stopping your pill in the middle of a cycle probably isn’t the best course of action, because your body will be even more confused than it otherwise would just coming off the pill normally. If you don’t want to come off the pill before the honeymoon so that you don’t get your period, then you should probably just focus on starting to TTC afterward – anyways, you shouldn’t get your hopes set too high on a honeymoon baby, as it would be wonderful if it were to happen right away, but if you don’t even know what your cycle will look like there’s a very good chance you won’t even be ovulating during that time. Stop taking the pill after this cycle, then at the very least track your periods so that you know the basic length of your cycle, or look into charting or OPKs if you want a greater chance of getting pregnant quickly.
Best of luck, and congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

I haven’t had a baby or anything- but if you’re serious I would get off the pill now and use condoms till the honeymoon.

It’s fine to drink on your honeymoon. If you happen to conceive, baby won’t share a blood supply for a few weeks. Basically, drinking till you get a positive pregnancy test is OK.
As far as the pill goes, you probably should have quit taking them before now so you can regulate. There’s no way to know if you’ll even be ovulating on your honeymoon. I wouldn’t suggest skipping a pill on your honeymoon and then continuing to take them afterwards. Either quit taking them now, hope you don’t get your period on your honeymoon, or keep taking them and start trying when you get back.

It sounds like you want to not have your period on your honeymoon. I would stop the pill after your honeymoon and then start TTC.

What @MissCountryGirl727 said. If you wanted a honeymoon baby then you should have quit taking the pills at least ~3 months ago to get a better idea of your cycle and so that you for sure knew you were ovulating. I’m not sure what kind of pills you’re taking, but you should finish out your pack and don’t start another one. You should also make an appointment with your doctor to talk about what your options are for trying to concieve ASAP.

shasha101: I totally understand your excitement and desire to conceive on your honeymoon. However, it makes more sense for you to wait until you get back. Once back, you can stop taking the pill and officially start TTC. I went off of BC once married, but we used the POM because we weren’t ready for a baby quite yet. We also hadn’t taken a honeymoon. So about 8 months later, I went back on BC about a month before the honeymoon so that my skin looked great and my period didn’t show up during our romantic getaway. Once we returned from the honeymoon, I went of BC and got pregnant that next month. My advice: just enjoy your honeymoon, drink, and relax. TTC can be stressful and a lot of pressure. Hope it all works out! 🙂

shasha101: I drank and got drunk twice during the first 2 weeks of conception.. since the bean is still a floating clump of cells I decided I’d drink until a test proves I’m pregnant.
But you’re on the pill so odds aren’t in your favour, so I say drink, have fun BDing and just enjoy your dream honeymoon and don’t stress about getting pregnant!

If you don’t conceive for a few months after your honeymoon, the baby will still be special I promise!

Trying to conceive while on the pill, even if using it incorrectly is slim. Also conceiving while on a hormone pill, can be hard on your body. If i was trying to conceive I’d be on prenatal vitamins and no alcohol near me. Your best shot is to come off the pill wait a cycle and then start, especially if you don’t want a period over the honeymoon. I know it’s the dream conception, but you have left it too late to cycle and come off the pill the right way. You want to do it in the best possible way for the baby’s health too, so having no alcohol and eating healthy for both of you gives you a much better chance. You should go to your Dr and see what the best thing for you is.

shasha101: Here’s the thing…even if you stopped taking the pill, you don’t know when you’re going to ovulate. I was kind of in the same situation as you, I wanted to possibly conceive during the honeymoon. But, not being on my period was more important to me. What a sucky honeymoon that would have been! If you’d stopped taking the pill a few months ago, then you’d have an idea of when your period would be and when you would ovulate. But since you didn’t, your cycle could be crazy at first. Some women end up with a really long cycle and don’t get a period for a couple months coming off the pill. Others (like me) end up with really short cycles and short luteal phases. You could also end up with random mid cycle spotting. Anyway, all of that is to say that if you want to conceive, you’ll definitely have to stop taking the pill. But with your wedding so close, I would just wait until after the honeymoon so you have a little more control over avoiding AF since you’ll pretty much have no control once the pill is stopped. 🙂

shasha101: You can’t be on the pill and off the pill at the same time.. that’s like majorly trying to have your cake and eat it too 😀
Either you want a baby, in which case stop taking the pill according to the instructions, and start to monitor when you’re ovulating, and put up with the inconveinence of periods,
Or you don’t want to get your period on your honeymoon, in which case continue to take the pill until the end of January and then go off the pill and start to TTC.
The pill is a pretty reliable birth control method… it is extremely unlikely that you would conceive.

shasha101: I was off the pill for 10 months before the wedding and didn’t get pregnant on honeymoon. My advice would be enjoy your honeymoon come off the pill the following month it’s only an extra month! You will never get that honeymoon time back with your Darling Husband. Also have you started taking prenatals like folic acid etc? if you’re thinking about conceiving in the near future it’s good to start on those.

The fertile window in which you can actually get pregnant is only a few days and requires you to not have been on birth control long enough to ovulate. If you are currently on the pill, and don’t want to go off of it because you don’t want your period on your honeymoon, then I don’t see how you could possibly start trying on your wedding night. That doesn’t make any sense. I would say stay on birth control until after the wedding and when you’re done with your last pack, then go for it.
