Hello Customer!
A prescription of a progesterone only pill in higher dose (I use Prometrium) can be given by your dr to be taken two days before you are due and continue through when you want to postpone it to. There is no guarantee this will work to stop a period that has already started. If you have started then you can try this but nothing really works 100% to stop it. If you are on the pill you can get an extra week to take and continue through the "fake" pills to postpone as well. This is less effective than the progesterone and you may get more breakthrough.
Good Luck Hope this helps!

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.
