    My boyfriends coming to stay with me in a week's time for a couple of days and we're in a LDR so sex is something we definitely both want to happen. However, I have irregular periods but I'm pretty sure I will start around then. What would be the best thing to do to ensure this doesn't happen? Is there a pill I can take to put it off or make it start (around now) so I won't be on it for next week?
    (I'm not/never have been on the pill)

    Thanks

    Go to the doctors, they can give you a pill which will hold it off until you stop taking it :-)
    It can make you feel a bit sick/bloated, but does the job.

    I've heard parsley tea and vitamin C to induce, I tried it in the summer but it didn't work for me, might just be me though
    Otherwise, go to the doctor and ask for Norethisterone, I think it is

    Your doctor can prescribe you norethisterone, which will prevent it for as long as you take the pills. As soon as you stop taking them your period will come about 3 days later, but I had terrible stomach pains for a day or two after that.
