If you are on birth control pills. Start taking next months supply as soon as the months real pills end. I say this meaning you are to skip the week of placebo pills or instead of just quit taking the pill for the week to get your period. It is safe to just keep taking the pill and never get your period. If you are NOT on the pill there is no way to stop it from happening. Your boyfriend may not mind having sex while you are menstrating. Just have a towle under you and a washcloth near by for both of you when you are done.

I don't think there is a way to make your period come early without using birth control pills. Like suggested before, you could stop it from coming with pills, but our bodies have a cycle, so I dont believe there is anything you can do Sorry

None of these will make a difference since your body regulates itself. Why not consider starting birth control and using that as a way to avoid your period during this time? You didn't say how far away the wedding is but if you have time see your doc about starting birth control. Also I think you fiance better get a lighter attitude about periods and sex etc since there will be an awful lot of times in your married life when you will be having your period.

Rude comments? I think you are a wee bit thin-skinned! Nothing anyone said here sounds remotely rude to me. As for your question, you could ask your doctor for a px for Provera (not Depo) to bring your period on before the wedding.

Humphreys 11 is a natural old school way of bringing on your period..you can get this from your local pharmacist (they probably wont have any in stock but can get you some within a day or two)..follow the directions on the bottle (i believe its 2 pills every few hours, not exactly sure sinces its been a while since i've used it)..just read the directions..if youre not pregnant it will bring on your period...good luck.

Where did you see that green tea can bring on a period early? I have been taking birth control pills to try to stop my period completely under instructions from my doctor for endometriosis and it's not working. I drink green tea quite a bit. I wonder if that could be making me spot.

A couple of years ago i was due to have my period right in the middle of my holiday. I went to the doctor and asked what i could do and he gave me a pill that delayed it (he said it was similar to a birth control pill, but would not actually work as birth control in the way i was taking it).

I took it for about a week to delay it but i don't know if you could take it for longer maybe if you need to

Hey Luck1881

If nothing else works then maybe you could try "Instead". It is meant for having sex during your period.

You can use it during your period instead of tampons/pads and it blocks the flow of blood. Apparently you can also use a condom with "Instead" and does no harm.

I've actually never used this product but a friend of mine has and she recommends it.

Try doing a search on the internet on the product and see what comes up. There may be another product along the same lines.
