Yes, period can be postponed or delayed for few days from due date by using hormonal medications (like progesterone pill). These are widely used for most of the patients.

As you have planned for traveling on those dates, she can take Norethisterone tab to postpone her period. It should be taken 3 days prior to period due date. She would get a withdrawal bleeding, similar to period within 3-5 days after stopping the tab. It is a prescription only drug. Please take the drug prescribed by her doctor.

Hope, I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help.

Wish your good health & happy journey.
