I’ve never heard of this, but your best bet would be to go to your doctor/gynecologist and ask them if there’s anything they can do. They will be up on all the latest medications and have the best advice!

Yes, there is a pill which will enable you to ‘skip’ your period – norethisterone, I think it is called. Whilst not being a contraceptive for short-term use (it is important to bear this in mind), it DOES delay your period for a while. I would recommend you talk to your GP about it, and see what they have to say.

I haven’t heard of this either, but I’d definitely check with your GYN about the best options! They hear about this type of stuff all the time.

I took the very pill when I went on holiday.  It’s called Norethisterone. You have to take 3 a day to delay a period I think.  Side effects wise I had some difficulty sleepign at night but nothing else.

I’m taking it at the moment as it’s a progestogen and has been perscribed for my painful periods on top of the combined bith control pill and I will be on them long term. I have no side effects at all (so far, touch wood).

I think there are other brands too.

From the info leaflet:

To postpone a period (for example, in cases of too frequent bleeding, or special circumstances such as a forthcoming operation, travel, sport or a special occassion), the usual dose is one tablet three times daily, starting three days before the expected period, and continued until no further postponement is required. A normal period should occur two to three days after the last tablet.

I’ve never heard of this but it can’t hurt to talk to your doctor and see what all your options are.
