There's a pill the doctor can give you called Utovlan which delays your period. You start taking it 3 days before your period is due and continue taking it through your holiday, taking is 3 times a day. You stop taking it when you get back from your holiday and then your period comes.

AnswerI don't think that is true. Some women who are taking Birth Control pills and know they will be on their period when they are on vacation or for whatever other reasons and would like to skip it don't take the sugar pills in their pack and go straight to their next pack of active birth control pills. Please know that even doing this may backfire and you may still get breakthrough bleeding which could last longer than the period would have. However, if you are not taking birth control pills, aren't on the patch or NuvaRing among others... there isn't a way to stop it. AnswerYes, the combination birth control pill. If you're already on the pill, and you're at least 3 months away (the more time you have, the better) form starting your vacation, you can switch to a continuous regimen [you only take the active pills, and skip the placebo ones]. Switching to a continuous regimen well in advance of the vacation allows the body to get used to the new regimen, and reduces the likelihood of breakthrough bleeding/spotting.

If you're scheduled to start your vacation sooner, your doctor can give you a higher dose pill regimen, to stop your period.

AnswerYes, it is called Norethisterone tablets. You take those a few days before your period is due, and it delays it until you come back from your holiday. They are not contraceptives though, so still use a contraceptive as well.

A few things could be going on. If you were sexualy active just after going off the pill, then you could be pregnant and the first period was not a period. If you had contact of any sort or you were taken advantage of after the period, you could be pregnant. The symptoms listed could be the result of going off the pill. Do an EPT and/or see your doctor about a blood screen.

The pill will start delaying periods after taken for a full cycle, depending on the hormones and your reaction sometimes it takes a couple cycles.
