Trying to concieve. Came off pills. Using withdrawal. How to avoid period to get pregnant?

Hello. I am getting married in 9 weeks and want to start trying to concieve during my honeymoon. I came off the pill 4 months ago. My periods are roughly every 23 days. We are using the withdrawal method at the moment. If my periods stay at 23 days - I am due in our wedding day. I don t want to take norethisterone as I want to be drug free, want to be able to concieve on honeymoon and technically could be pregnant before wedding due to risky withdrawal method. Any suggestions? Is there a pill i can take now to knudge my cycle to avoid period o wedding without taking medication? Many thanks

Hello Jennifer
The only way to delay periods is to take pills, either OC pills or norethisterone. To make sure it is effective it should be started from the cycle previous to your wedding. Unfortunately I do not see how you can be drug free on your wedding day, if you want to be absolutely sure of postponing your periods. Also if you stop then ,you will probably have your periods just after the wedding, which again you do not want.
You have only two options I feel
1. Carry on the pill till after your honeymoon and then stop. In that way you may not conceive during your honeymoon, but at least you do not have the hassle of periods during your wedding.
2. Go completely natural. Hope for the best. If you do have your periods during your wedding, at least you should be free soon and you would have avoided any medication.
Best wishes.

Thanks for writing to us.
To regulate your periods date, you will have to take hormonal tablets. To conceive successfully during the honeymoon, it is best to have your periods as scheduled and then monitor yourself for the signs of ovulation.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
