First day of periods, need to stop them due to a travel plan. Is there a medication or method I could use to stop my period?

My period just started today however I need to stop my period ASAP for a week, as I am travelling to a remote area where there are no showers etc. Especially since I dont use tampons, I prefer using pads, its just unhygenic for me to have my period while camping out bush with no amenities. Is there a medication or method I could use to stop my period for the next week?
