thanks for the query.
to prepone the periods the available options are,
1.using different kinds of progesterones
- micronised progesterone tablets like susten or injections, or
- medroxy progesterone acetate tablets like divery
2.using oral contraceptive pills containing estrogen and progesterone.

preferred method is using progesterones. To use them for preponing the periods you should preferably start them before 15 days.
these tablets should be taken for 5 days, during that period progesterone levels rise and after stopping the tablets within 5 to 7 days withdrawal bleeding will occur, remember this is not actual period.
Using tablets for preponing the periods may make the next cycles irregular.
And people with obesity, XXXXXXX vein thrombosis, heart problems etc should take consultation of doctor before taking tablets.
So, better consult your local gynecologist once and choose the tablets.

As I told if you start tablets 15 days before expected periods you can prepone, if you are not having that much time better to postpone them.
You can use the tablets suggested by your doctor, after stopping tablets within 2 to 5 days you will get periods.
If you continuously use the tablets preferably at the same time everyday you will not get periods normally. If you miss even one day dose there is a chance of withdrawal bleeding.
There are some side effects which can occur with these tablets like nausea, bloating sensation, breast tenderness etc and there is chance of menstrual irregularities in future cycles.
Don't worry all the women will not experience these symptoms. But be cautious if symptoms become severe day by day better stop the drug and consult your gynecologist.
Wish you Good Health, If you are satisfied with my response please accept it.
take care
