I need some advice on switching birth control pills. I am currently on the mini pill however it is very hard to regulate my period and know when it is coming. Sometimes I will not get it at all, other times it will be very heavy. I am getting married in one month. My period is "supposed" to be at the time of my wedding. I am wanting to switch to the combined pill for 2 months to be able to skip my period for the wedding and then resume the mini pill after. Any thoughts or suggestions?

I think the best person to talk about this with is your doctor, they can discuss options with you and work out the best one.
