A drug called norethindrone can postpone the periods. Your doctor may prescribe pills for three to four days before your menstruation is due. Your menstruation should start two to three days after you stop taking the medication.

Contraceptive pills

By skipping the contraceptive pill (the seven-day gap when you generally bleed) and starting your fresh pack of pills right away, women who use progesterone-estrogen combination birth control pills can postpone their menstruation. Before doing anything, be sure to consult your doctor.


Attempts to postpone a period using chemical or natural methods may not be successful. If they don't, you could still get your period. Even if there isn't a complete period, irregular bleeding or spotting may still occur.

Remember that you should never self medicate and always consult a doctor before taking any of these medicines.
