    Yes the pill can delay it, you could take 2 packs back-to-back and effectively miss it that month. It always comes when there are plans involved! You've made me think now I'm going to check my plans for oct! Lol xXx

    Im on cerazette too....wonder pills I think.

    In the past I was on femodene (I think) and tried the continuation method to stop a period and ended up with a 5 or 6 week period! Only happened that time and had worked before.
    There is a pill you can get from the docs that stops them even if youre not on the pill I think.

    I think there is pill you can take that will delayed your period though I think you have to be fairly 'regular' to take it because you have to start taking it 3 days (I think) before you are due to come on.
    Also from what I have heard, it can cause havoc with you cycle afterwards and can cause the next period to be really heavy..

    Hi...

    being hindu, when we have religious ceremonies we cannot attend if we are on our periods, so there is a pill your dr can prescribe for you called Northesterone which is not the contraceptive pill, but delays your period for upto a month nonetheless. Although I never had side effects from it, my cousin used to get extremely bloated, so if you do take it, I would advise stopping sooner rather than waiting a whole month... hope that helps :)

    p.s still not seeing the justice of why women got periods and not men!!!! :p

    That was the pill that I was thinking of. I have heard of a few people getting it for when they go away on holiday. I think that this is a much safer way than a normal contraceptive pill or injection that may stop you periods completely. I used to be on the depo injection and for me personally I hated it once I came off it. I realised that your body needs to get rid of all that stuff and clear itself out and it takes ages for your body to get back to normal (it took my body about 2 years to get back to normality!).
    Anyway, good luck at the docs.

    P.S. I also dont agree why we have to go through this.....SO UNFAIR!!!! x xx x

    I've taken a pill for this before now. Absolutely no hassle. Went to docs and explained. Prescribed these pills (3 a day if I remember correctly) to start taking 3 days before due and just carry on taking until you're back from hols. Had no problems with them, started a 'normal' period a couple of days after I stopped taking them. HTH
