I suppose that you are not using a birth control pill. The beginning of your period then can be delayed by taking a hormonal medication (gestagen, e.g. utrogest) prescribed by your OB/GYN. You should start using it 4-5 days before expecting your bleeding, it will start then 2-3 days after stopping the use.

Kind regards,

Dr. N. Scheufele

Thank you. Is this something most NP's and doctor's are familiar with that I can request easily? Any side effects? No I am not on birth control.
Expert:  Dr Norbert Scheufele replied 1 year ago.

No problem, any doctor can give you a prescription. Side effects are scarcely to be expected.
