We have all had to deal with our periods at the most inconvenient times. It never fails to throw a wrench into our plans. Booked a once-in-a-lifetime beach vacation? Bloating and cramps. Getting married? Extra heavy flow. Important job interview? Cranky and headachy. Have you ever considered putting off your period with natural methods or by using a delay period pill? There are a few ways that you can postpone Aunt Flo’s visit for a little while.

Natural methods for postponing your period

Since the dawn of time, we’ve have been trying different methods to postpone our periods. If you search online, you will find quite a few recommendations for natural remedies. Some of these remedies may include drinking regular doses of apple cider vinegar, drinking gelatin dissolved in water, ingesting gram lentil flour, or drinking lemon juice. Unfortunately, the science behind these methods is not good. None of them have been proven to delay periods reliably for any length of time.

In fact, these remedies may actually cause you additional discomfort. Drinking acidic fluids like vinegar and lemon juice can cause heartburn. Too much gram lentil flour or gelatin can increase bloating and add flatulence to the mix. These are definitely not things that you want to experience alongside your regular PMS symptoms.

What actually works

Fortunately, there are trusted, safe, and reliable medical solutions including delay period pills like Norethindrone. Norethindrone can delay your period for weeks at a time. This prescription medication has very few side effects but if you decide to use it, your doctor will tell you what to expect.

If you want to delay your period and also would like the pregnancy prevention of birth control pills, talk to your doctor about continuous-use birth control. When used correctly, some birth control pills like Seasonique can either drastically shorten and/or lighten your period. Some women actually stop getting their periods altogether. Your doctor can tell you more about the different types of birth controls pills and delay period pills available.
