I am 48 years old and just started birth control pills on July

Customer Question

I am 48 years old and just started birth control pills on July 18th first day of my period to try and avoid my period for my wedding September 10th, however I am now worried about side effects of the pill and have decided to stop. My periods have become irregular possibly perimenapause. Can I just wait and see if it comes next month and if I don't get it by the end of of August can I just restart the pill in hopes of skipping it for my wedding?
