    You want to delay your period? If you are not on the pill, then there is a medicine called norethisterone, which can be started three days before a period is due. Then i think you take it for seven days and when you stop taking it your period arrives. I've taken it before when i've been going on holiday and not wanting to bother with periods.

    Other than that, no idea.

    Oh I'm sure that would cost a mint! I want to hold it off so I can get into the gyno on my appt day, so that would be pretty much defete the purpose of it anyway. Plus I have no idea when it is due, the pill was my only way of telling :p but I'm pretty sure it will be right around then. And I'm a bitch and do not want to reschedule! but thanks :)
