Is there anything you can take to stop periods as you are going away for the weekend?

No. The body functions on its own schedule. You can't stop your period any more than you can change your eye color. The above answer is totally untrue. Of course you can skip periods, I do it all the time. You need to be on the pill, and then all you do is skip the week of the pill when you would normally have your period (the sugar pill) and go right to the start of the next month. And my doctor said its fine to do it as long as you dont skip more than 2 or 3 without letting yourself have a period. i never have a period all summer....
