Some women may wish to delay a period. This may be if a period is due at a time that would be inconvenient; for example, on a special holiday, during an exam, etc.
Delaying a period cannot be guaranteed but the following usually works.
If you are taking a fixed-dose combined oral contraceptive pill (cOCP - often just called 'the pill') then simply start the next pack without the usual 7-day break.
Taking two packs back-to-back in this way is safe if it is done occasionally. You still need to have a 7-day break at the end of these two packets.
If you are not taking 'the pill' then a hormone tablet called Norethisterone can be prescribed.
