If you aren't already on the pill, the only other way is to ask your doctor for a prescription for Norethisterone which is a type of progesterone. If you start taking it 3-4 days before your expected period, you will skip your period. You may get some breakthrough bleeding, but you will completely skip your period. Once you stop taking it, it will take a couple days for your period to return. This would be the only way to skip your period.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
