I am also not sexually active and getting married in june, but I really wish my experience was more like yours!!

I am on the last week before the placebo of my second pack right now. I have been having TERRIBLE breakthrough bleeding. I have always had very painful cramps that lasted about 2 days. I started bleeding and the cramps last thursday and the pain has gotten worse every day and the bleeding is just as heavy if not more heavy than my normal period. I am now on day 5 of bleeding and terrible pain.

My wedding is june 7th and I am so scared that the breakthrough is going to happen again for the wedding and honeymoon. Both breakthrough times have been around the middle of the pack which is when my wedding will fall on.

I don't know what to do. My doctor says ANY pill birth control will have breakthrough bleeding for the first 3 months, but this just doesn't seem right. Its not spotting, thats for sure. Its WORSE than my regular period. However, at the same time I am worried that if i do switch to something stronger maybe, that it might be worse? I don't know...

I just don't want to be miserable and sick through my whole wedding and honeymoon...and my doctor doesn't give me very clear direction as to if there are any other options. She told me the nuvaring thing would be less likely for breakthrough bleeding, but i just feel weird about having that in there and such...

would it be a bad idea to switch this late in the game since my first month on something different would be the month of the wedding or just pray that this is the last month of bad cramps and bleeding on loestrin. I have read so many things about loestrin and lots of bleeding so it makes me think its gonna be like this next month too.... :(

PLEASE HELP, I feel so helpless and clueless.
