Something to take away a period
I am not on the pill at the moment. I expect my period to be next weekend but we are going camping and it could be very uncomfortable and embarrassing. Is there anything you can take to make you skip your period and does that have very bad side effects?

You can take Povera tablets, starting 7-10 days before your period is due. This can make some people nauseous. You should then carry on with these until you wish to have a period. It usually starts a day or two after stopping the provera.
