I need to stop my period for a couple days.
I have come on early and I have Utolvan to delay it, but because of starting early I hadn't started taking it yet.

Does anyone know how to stop a period once it has started? or if there is anything I can get to do this?

Any help is appreciated, Thanks.

(Sorry is this is in the wrong forum...I couldn't really find another place to put it.)

I doubt you can take any medication that will prevent it once it has started.

Yes those medications work by preventing the formation of the uterine lining which is all well and good.

However, if she is already having her period, she will not be able to stop it as the lining has to go somewhere and cannot stay in the uterus as that would cause much bigger problems. So for this particular period there is not much she can do.

there are a few ways to delay a period when you know you want to in advance (drugs containing a progestogen like norethisterone need to be taken up to a week before the period would be due!).

but i don't think you can stop one when it has already started :confused: (i have a fairly limited knowledge of periods i'm afraid :p: )

It takes a while, but not eating *enough* will do the trick. It wouldn't stop a period halfway through though. It would take at least a few months and might depend upon how much you ate. Supposedly there is a bmi/weight that people stop menstruating under, but I don't think weight is such an important factor.

isn't that the whole point of what she's asking though? otherwise she could just take medication a week before.
