For postponement of your periods you can take NORETHISTERONE tablet.
The dose is 5 mg three times a day starting 3-4 days before a period is due. It can be continued for up to two weeks or so until you want to have a period. Your period will then normally begin 2-3 days after stopping it. Norethisterone is normally safe to take. However, Some women have side-effects such as bloating, stomach upset, breast discomfort and reduced libido (sex drive).
You can discuss with your doctor about it and get a prescription for it.

Hi thanks for your question.
You can postpone your periods there is no problem but every medicine carries some side effect which you have to bear.There is drug called norethisterone.It is taken 5mg 3 times a day begning 3 days before your expected periods and continued in the same dosage untill it is convient for the periods to begain.I would suggest you to consult a gynaecologist who may advice you in this regard.
Hope this answers your question.
