Period due on wedding day - help?!

Christie, 25 of February of 2024 at 18:56 Posted on Off Topic Posts 0 2
Hi all!

I'm very regular and according to my period tracker, I will start my period on my wedding day! Obviously I want to avoid this as much as possible! White dress, logistics, pain etc!!
I am currently not on the pill or any other form of contraception as this is my choice for my health.
I have looked into period delay tablets and because my BMI is above a certain number, I may not get the popular one (according to super drug website) and may be offered an alternative.
Despite this, has anyone been in or are in a similar situation? Has anyone had the tablets before? I am considering trying it a month or so before the wedding to get any side effects out of the way. If I take a month or so before and my period comes a few days after stopping the tablets, does a new cycle start after 28 days or does it begin on your old dates? If that makes sense?
For e.g. period due on the 10th, tablets taken to push back to 20th. The next month, does it start a new cycle or will it be a shorter cycle?
Hope someone can help!!!

    Your best bet would be to speak to your GP. It would certainly be worth trying it out a few weeks in advance to make sure it doesn't give you any side effects. I'd make an appointment as soon as possible - you might want to try out options now so that if they don't work, you have the time to consider other things before your wedding day.

    (If your cycle goes back to normal as from the time you stop taking your delay medication, you might also have the option of pushing it back by a few days now so that when you resume your natural cycle, your period no longer lands on your wedding day)

    Ahh I could have written this post! I’ve been worried about this for ages, I’m not due on our wedding day but mine are irregular and it could change. I have been off the pill for the last 2 years but I’m considering going on the one you don’t take a break from, so I think I’ll start at least a month before and then I will just continue taking it every day until after the wedding and then I’ll stop again! But best to talk to your doctor, I wouldn’t order any type of contraceptive pill online, as some of them can be so bad for you and a doctor should be able to identify the one you need. Good luck!
