HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

If you are using the birth control pill then you can start the next pack without the normal break in between.

If you are not on the pill then you can consider using norethisterone.

Norethisterone can be used to delay periods. It is taken 5 mg three times daily, 3 to 4 days before the period is due.It can be continued up to 2 weeks or until you wish to have your period.

You would need to obtain a prescription from your doctor.

I hope this helps
