If you were on birth control pills, it's usually fairly easy to control when your period will come. Otherwise it's possible to do with Norethisterone. This is a progesterone pill that you need to get from your doctor (in most countries). You take it 5 mg 3 times a day starting 3 days before you expect your period. It usually works fairly well, although sometimes you'll get a little bleeding or spotting. Best wishes.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
