Can you delay your period?
Yes, you can delay menstruation by taking medication like
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.
