Best Answer

Yes, you can delay menstruation by taking medication like Norethisterone.

Norethisterone is essentially a synthetic progesterone so started three days before menstruation it prevents the progesterone drop that would normally trigger menstruation to begin. This drug is normally prescribed by a doctor and you take it three times per day from three days before your period, you continue to take it until you want your period to start. Menstruation will normally occur within around 48 hours of stopping the pills, it can be heavier but that isn't always the case.

How postpone/delay period (menstruation)

(see below related link "How Postpone Period")

Often girls and women asking for changing dates of their periods because of swimming
parties, summer holidays, diving, very special meetings with boyfriends, sport competitions, etc. As this demand is existing, some pharmaceutical companies are trying to find harmless solutions. What are possibilities? - 1). extended-cycle oral contraception (if important evens are scheduled in advance), 2). gestagens (if events are planned unexpectedly) or 3). Birth Control pills in special extended regime (if person already using birth control pills at the time event is planned)

Norethisterone can be prescribed by your doctor and works well. It only needs to be taken 3 days before expected period and for as long as you wish to delay menstruation. This is the best option for women who aren't on continual hormonal birth control.
