    Having sex and/or orgasms can actually help relieve the pain of uterine contractions (read: cramps).

    However, if you’re experiencing such pain that you need to take vicodin, I would definitely (seriously) be seeing an ob/gyn asap.

    I actually changed my wedding date for this very reason ! I really didn’t want my period on my wedding night and the honeymoon week. I get bloated, irritable and don’t feel sexy at all !

    I was scheduled to start my period on my wedding day, but I’m on the pill so I just skipped it altogether. I recommend going that route!

    Maybe Too Much Information… But my SO has no issue with it. If it happens, we use a condom (less mess, less risk of UTI for the man, I suppose!) but it depends. If he hadn’t been so cool with it, I would have a serious problem with it. But since he approached it as not a big deal, and was prepared for what it’d be like and wasn’t like “ew gross”, it’s now not a big deal. But I think it’s one of those issues that’ll take some communication to decide whether or not both of you are comfortable.  I think if one of you isn’t 100%, it’ll just really suck!

    If I skip my placebo pills will I still get period? I knew I was going to have my period on exactly my wedding day so I skipped the placebo and wondering if I still get a period at all? So confusing…

    @jenny8283: No; if you just continue taking active pills, your period won’t come. However, you maay still get spotting. And in my case, it means the PMS doesn’t go away; my SO would rather just do it on my period than have me, yannow, murder him. But I know other girls who say it works wonders; they don’t get their period and nothing really changes. So you might want to experiment before your wedding day, too! Seasonale works the same way, it’s just marketed to do what you can do by just continuously taking the pill.
