I am getting married in 6 days. I recently started Mononessa, and am on my 3rd pack now. My doctor told me I could skip periods, and actually recommended me doing so since I have extremely painful periods that often leave me stuck in my bed and throwing up all day. However, I do not remember her telling me there was a certain amount of consecutive periods I could not miss. At the time, my wedding was 3 months away and I was scheduled to be on my period on my wedding and the whole week of my honeymoon. I decided I better get the hang of the skipping periods thing just so I could skip for my wedding and honeymoon. So, my goal was to skip 3, and then go back to having them normally. The first two months everything was fine, but yesterday I started noticing a brown discharge and I began cramping. I have enough blue pills to last me until this Friday (my wedding day). I was planning on not taking the sugar pills and going to a new pack, so I would not be on my period on my honeymoon. Should I not do that? I read someone say on here that missing more than 2 consecutively puts you at a risk for bold clots and strokes? Should I start the sugar pills now, to try and be done with my period by wedding time? Would that put me at risk for getting pregnant? I am a virgin so I am completely new to birth control and all of these things, I would appreciate any quick answers I can get! I have tried to call my doctor but they are not open on the weekends. I'm freaking out just a little! :(

Also, this may be a dumb question, but if you do have sex during the week of the sugar pills, is that basically like having sex with no protection? I don't want to, but I can't go my whole honeymoon without having sex.
I don't know where you saw that about clots. Take all the active pills in this pack then start your next pack, it might stop this one. Then next time allow a period. Some drs tell women they can do it all the time, but some find doing that leads to spotting. When I was younger we didn't have the pill, and I managed to have my period on my wedding day, my senior prom, back to my 16th birthday, get the point. The stress will try to start it, but if you're on the active pills it should be lighter and shorter. You are safe during the week you are on the inactive pills, as long as you take your pills every day, within an hr of the time. We're glad to help you anytime. Just give a yell. One suggestion if you're going into your wedding night a virgin, take some ky gel or other lubricant with you. It can stop some of the unecessary problems. I applaud you also, you had the strength to wait.
