HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

There is medication that can be used to delay your periods. One of the most commonly used medications to delay periods is norethisterone.

This is a progesterone.

It is started 3 to 4 days before the period is due and continued for up to 2 weeks or so until you want to have a period.
Your period will start 2 to 3 days after stopping it.

It will also have a contraceptive effect.

I hope this helps
