Delay Period?
Hi,

I am going on leave / romantic getaway with my boyfriend (for about 15 days)but my period will fall smack bang in the middle of our trip.
Is there anything I can take to delay my period or speed it up or something, and if there is is it something I can get over the counter?

Thank you

You could take Provera tablets, starting 10 days before your period is due and continueing till you want to have a period. If you are on the Pill, you could just skip the placebos.

Best wishes
