Hi
GREETINGS
When did she get her first period? I mean at what age?
Is it regular now?
Progesterone tablets can be taken to postpone periods.For name and dose you need to consult your gynaecologist as she has to be examined clinically to rule out any contraindications .There are different preparations available. Your gynaecologist will prescribe the best one for her.
Hope my answer helps you.
