Hi, I would like to delay my period or accelerate it, I am on a skyla iud, is this possible?

Thank you for your question, to stop them you should take over counter contraceptive pills, you should continue them for 21 days and then stop them. On stopping you will get your menstrual bleeding. Thank you.
