So unfortunately I’m supposed to have my period over the honeymoon 🙁 I usually get my period tuesday or wednesday, and we leave for our honeymoon wednesday night. I was planning on skipping my active pills for that week to avoid my period- but my doctor said that there could still be some breakthrough bleeding. I’m now thinking of maybe skipping my period this month- which will bring my period a week earlier— but then I will have it during my wedding (Sunday… my periods last like 6 days- even on the pill!) although it will be much lighter. I just know I won’t want to deal with it on my wedding, but I also don’t want any “breakthrough” bleeding on my honeymoon.
What’s your suggestion? Which is “worse”?

I got my period right before we left on our honeymoon. I was so glad it held off until then (I knew there was no chance of avoiding it altogether). I just did not want to deal with that crap during my wedding! I hate cramps plus I get bloated and I would be worried about the dress fitting right.

I once tried to skip my period when I was on the pill, and I seriously had light spotting/bleeding all month long! It seemed like it would never stop. After that, I vowed to never try to skip my period again. I know that everyone has different experiences, but I thought I would share mine. Just be careful, since you’ve never done it before and don’t know how your body might react.

Oh, whoops. Read that as “which would you prefer” in my special way. I MEANT to vote that having your period DURING your wedding would be worst. Bloating could make you totally uncomfortable and might affect your dress fit, imagine having those cramps that radiate to your knees… Plus what if there’s breakthrough on your DRESS? Nonono I’d rather suck it up on my honeymoon than my wedding. You can get funky with your man any other time… You only get married once!

I voted to chance the break through bleeding on your honeymoon. Even if it is light, you can still do pretty much everything anyway. On the other hand, I can’t imagine dealing with period stuff in a wedding dress. My dress wasn’t even that big but there was no way I was dealing with a tampon on it.

I couldnt pee by myself in my dress. My bridesmaids are fantastic ladies but not sure were close enough for them to hang out in the stall while I dealt with that… I’d probably risk the breakthrough bleeding on my honeymoon.

I say the chance that you will breakthrough bleed is better than having a full on pd either durng your wedding or hm. I did this a few times when I was on the pill and never had any spotting at all so I’d say the chances of btb are slim.
I usually get my pd at the every end of the month which will run over into our August 4th wedding if it comes as usual 🙁 i have the non hormonal iud so I can’t skip it etc, I do track it on an app and the app says Its moving up and itll bemid month so I’m hoping that happens! It will be the end of the hm which means I’ll be bloated during the second week of it but, nothing a few water pills can’t fix!

Shame on whoever put this on YouTube, and shame on me for perpetuating it, but take it as a warning! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4WfINo3Yr4

@Regina Phalange: omg that is gross and i definitely don’t want that happening!!!!
I’m now definitely thinking I will skip the period around my honeymoon- and just be prepared if there are any “surprises”
