Yes, you can take Norethisterone.

Norethisterone is essentially a progesterone pill so you start taking it three times per day from three days before your period is due and it stops the progesterone drop that would normally trigger menstruation. You continue to take the pills until you want your period to start.


If you're on hormonal birth control then you don't menstruate but instead get a withdrawal bleed due to the drop in hormones when going from active pills to your placebo or week break - thus you can skip this withdrawal bleed by skipping the placebo or week break. If not on hormonal birth control it's not a good idea to start for this purpose as irregular bleeding is normal the first three months, or maybe longer depending on how your body responds.


You don't have to miss your period - there is nothing that you can't do during menstruation, that includes sex. Sex during menstruation can be a lot more enjoyable than any other time of the menstrual cycle, you can also avoid mess by using diaphragms, softcups, menstrual sponges, or soft tampons which all go in the vagina to stop flow leaving your body but still allow penetration.

Not that I'm aware of, but if you talk to your doctor, they may be able to help you. But if you are on the pill you can skip the last week of the pack and yo will miss your period. Don't do this a lot, but I think your honeymoon is a good reason. =) My fiance and I abstained from sex before we were married and wouldn't you know it, I started my period 2 days before my wedding!! I called my OB/GYN and he gave me a birth control sample pack and had me take 3 each day for 2 days, then 2 each day for 2 days, then 1, etc. It stopped my period :) He thought that the honeymoon was a pretty good reason to help us out! Good luck to you! Yes. Instead of starting the sugar pills start a new pack of pills. This will cause you to miss your period that month. This is just like taking the new pill Seasonale Yes, start the new pack of pills instead of your sugar pills. You are completely able to do this routine as long as you choose not to have your period. It is purely a personal decision as to whether you want to have your period or not each month. Medically, I believe you will incur no problems. Remember, the pill sends your body the message that you are "pregnant", therefore, as long as you continue to take the hormones, your body will continue to believe it need not to have a period. As soon as you choose to have your period again, simply stop taking the pills. Have fun on your honeymoon! I went camping and the doctor perscribed me norethisterone which can delay it as long as you take it a few days before its due.

You can miss a period while using Paragard, just as you can miss a period when not using birth control. Take a pregnancy test.

No, it's not possible to miss your period if you just have a crush on someone. Not even being in love makes you miss it, only being pregnant. And when you first get your period they are not regular, it takes a while for them to become regular.

No, if you miss your period on the pill you should go see your doctor immediately.

No, taking an anti-inflammatory drug cannot make you miss a period. Menstruation is controlled by your menstrual cycle and hormonal changes that occur, you ovulate and then you menstruate, if you miss ovulation then you miss a period - this has nothing to do with your medication at all.
