    I'm going to Reading festival this year and I'm camping however my period is due to start a few days before it and I really don't want to be on my period during the festival because that would be horrible, and i was wondering if i should get the pill for the weekend or try and delay my period if thats even possible. Can you even get the pill for only a few days?

    Speak to your doctor but norethisterone is something you can take for a few days to delay a period rather than using the pill.

    Getting a pill for a few days doesn't work. The only way it would work would be if you were already on the pill and it was your off pill week but you continued onto the next month ones straight away.

    Try getting an emergency appointment with your gp (only way you'll get one before then) and see if they know anything that could help. Odds are tho, you'll have to deal with it
