    Does anyone know if the doctors will help with preventing ladies time of the month if due around the wedding?? I am due the day of my wedding and I'm not on any for of contraception due to hubby to be having the snip. I just can't bare the thought of being on on my wedding day. Sorry for the tmi subject

    MP2B, if you go to the Drs they do have something that can delay AF.... Not sure what' it's called but I know they can. Perhaps book an appointment and see them.

    Good luck xx

    I have an app on my phone that calculates when I'm due and luckily it's a good week and a half before xx

    Yes, Like Emma has said the Drs can prescribe something to delay it. Its worth booking an apt and discussing it with them. I know people have taken it when going on holiday etc.

    I think the pill delays your period when you start taking it? Maybe its worth just taking that before hand?

    I'm on the injection so I dont get my period at all. (Also worth considering)

    Yes I came off my pill in March and I use an app to track my periods but it was saying I was due about 2 days before the wedding so I have just started my pill again to delay it until after the wedding.

    The pill, the injection and getting pregnant are the best ways to get it to stop! Last option is a bit drastic though!

    The pill you can take during your pill free days. I start taking it the at the beginning of my period the month before the period I want to delay as I find that I don't spot. I've not had much experience personally with the injection. This is a good option if you tend to forget your pill. The one main problem that I have is I put on weight with the pill. Everyone is affected differently so it might not affect you in the same way

    I'd say going to the docs and getting tablets to delay your period is the best and simplest option - I looked into this a while ago as I was due on my period whilst I was going to be on holiday so wanted to delay it, but I didn't take it in the end as was put off by my doc saying I could have side effects such as stomach cramps.

    I've had a very bad experience with the injection, I persevered with it for 6 months but during that time had constant spotting.

    Personally if you don't need contraception I would avoid those options and go for the delay pill from your drs.

    I had terrible side effects with the hormones in the injection, implant and POP pill. I bled heavily constantly for 6 months so personally that's a very big risk to take for your wedding day. Everyone does react differently though.

    i have been wondering this myself, what if the dr's wont offer you the prescription? i know my dr's are a but funny about things. I am not on any contraception as i get really bad side effects from the hormones, is it likely that they will give you the prescription or can they turn you down?

    Thanks

    I suppose if here is a medical reason why you cant have it then you can understand them not prescribing it but I wouldn't be sure of another reason other than that.

    Mrs Prestleton2be yes you can def get something to delay your time of the month. It's called Norethisterone and you need to start taking it atleast 2 days prior to the first day of period. It's 3 times a day and when you stop taking them your period should come on as normal a couple of days later. I have used them in the past for hols and concerts and never experienced any side effects. If you usually get bad cramps that may still occur but you can take normal pain meds for that. You cant get meds to delay your period unless on prescription and I'd be very surprised if a gp refused to let you have it unless medically it's contraindicated for you.

    Like LauraH I've had northisterone when going on holiday and don't remember any side effects although I was much younger then. Now I'm on the pill and was supposed to come on on the wedding day so just missed the pill free week and went straight on to the next pack and it was fine when I had my next period.

    Perhaps specifically ask to see a female doctor as they may sympathise a bit more with the situation. X

    I have a contraceptive implant so haven't had a visit fromAF for nearly 5 years! It is heaven as I used suffer very badly!
    There are many ways to delay your monthly but you need to talk to your doctor asap

    Thank you ladies. My periods are all over the place at the moment. I can have 1 then miss 2 then have 1 miss one! So I think I may book an appointment and get the pill just to regulate them before hand. Just hope my docs will as they are also very tight with giving things out

    I did ask my doctor about the delay pill when I initially spoke to him about it and he told me that he wouldn't give it to me as they don't like to. Told me I would have to use my contraceptive pill if I wanted to delay.

    I just popped to my docs 2 weeks before the wedding and he had no problem prescribing it. I had a few crampy feeling when period was due but it didn't come until a few days after I stopped taking the tablets. It's easy.

    This is something I've also wondered about, and was never sure how to bring the subject up - so thank you very much.

    I am on the implant, and for the first year of it (it lasts 3 years), I don't usually get a period. After the 1st year, I tend to go back to having normal periods. However, I do also bleed when I'm stressed so I'm guessing its not going to be much of a fun time for me when I get married.

    I have to have my implant changed again this October, so I shall be having a chat with my doctor when I go about my options for nearer the time.

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    At one point I was going to be due a few days after, then I had an early one and my heaviest day would have been on the day, but then I had another early one so it was all done and dusted the week before. Bonus.

    You don't even need to to the gp, I bought a menstruation delay course (norethisterone, is the name of the active ingredient in the medication but there are different brand names)from the 8oot5 website!

    You fill out an online questionnaire and it comes in the post.
    I was due on the wedding day, and the day we left for our honeymoon, used it twice. Back to normal 2 days after stopping the pills.

    Thanks ladies. As my periods are so irregular I'm not sure when would be best to take it as I may come on a few days before the wedding. So I think I should go to my gp about the pill just to help me regulate them anyway.

    As you say you are so irregular it might be best to speak with the doctor anyway about going on the pill to try to get them more regular. It may also help if you are going on honeymoon as you will already be prepared.
    You don't need to pay the prescription charge for the pill either as its a contraceptive so is free on the NHS. X
