    Doubt it. You could go on the pill but I doubt even that would stop it now.

    You can go to the drs and get progestrogen tablets. You take one 3x a day, and when you stop you come on, its easy!

    Yep seriously just go to the docs and explain, they'll give you enough to get you through your holiday. And you start taking them 3 days before the period's due and stop as soon as you're ready for it to come, really easy!

    In my experience that's not true at all! They might be a bit heavier but for me it wasn't noticable. The tablets you get from the doc's are really reliable, haven't failed me yet!

    another idea I have came up with is to take the morning after pill. What would that do and how would it affect my periods?

    I don't know if it would work, but it would not be as good for you as just taking the progesterone.

    I'd stay away from the pill myself coz sum people have bad reactions and end up blowing up like a ballon and never get there figure back. Just a warning.

    Go to the doctor and ask her to prescribe you Northisterone.
    You take it like the day before you're period is due to start - 3 times a day with meals. It'll stop your period from coming on until you stop taking it.
    You may still experience PMS, but you won't bleed
    I did it when I went to Czech cos a) I was rather self conscious and couldn't be bothered with it and b) I was slightly hygeine conscious!!
