OK, so here's the deal: I have the heaviest, most uncomfortable and sadly unpredictable period EVER and here we are five days before the walk down the aisle and it's about to start. I can't find any ideas or help on the net except for people planning ahead with contraception. And contraception makes me sick and doesn't stop my period. WHAT IN GOD GREEN EARTH SHOULD I DO!? Any tips for keeping the dress white?
Oh man, is this ever #relatable. As someone who has shared your period woes, this is so so familiar and scary. Pristine dress, whacked out insides… when all you want to do is focus on having fun.
Let's talk about some tips to help when you have your period at the wedding, and hormone therapy isn't an option…
Tips when you have your period at the wedding…
Buy some period panties ahead of time
Period panties, like KNIX, are intended to be used alone. But if you're anticipating a really heavy flow, maybe pair period panties with another backup… or two. Knix + a tampon or Knix+ a menstrual cup… you get it.
Pack some pre-moistened wipes
Load up on supplies and have a friend carry extra for you
Make sure you have lots of supplies like tampons, menstrual cups, pads, etc. so you can swap out as needed. Change it a little more often than you normally would just so it's not occupying your mind. Give a few extra to a trusted friend so they can remind you whenever there's a lull in activity.
