  • If you are taking the pill (or planning to) you can use that to regulate yourself a few days one way or another.

  • For most of the pills, you only need to have a break (period) once every 6 months.
    It's perfectly safe. Discuss it with your doc.

  • Change your dates? I was on my period during my honeymoon. It was fine. We just held off having sex for a few days. It worked out.

    NOT TRUE
    less than 4 periods a year has been clinically proven to increase your risks with uterine cancer.
    I HOPE you are NOT doing this yourself against medical advice.

  • I'm not recommending this but I skipped a period with using the Nuva ring. I hadn't seen dh in 10 months and was supposed to get my period the day before he came home. I just took the old one out and put a new one in. I took it out after he left. Had a very light period.

    I'd check with your doctor to see if you can get on birth control and reschedule your period that way.

  • Lengthen your cycle with the pill, if you're not on it consider taking it at least until the honeymoon is over.
