Thanks for the query.

You can delay your periods by taking progesterone supplements for as long as you want to postpone.
Side effects include irregular bleeding pattern, headache, breast tenderness , nausea and vomiting.
They work instantly as long as you are in tablets.
Consult your Gynaecologist for prescription.

hi there, as you have already crossed your date, it is doubtful that any hormonal pill will work as they work on the principle of maintaining the hormone levels for few days before withdrawal bleeding starts.Also as you have missed period you need to confirm non pregnancy with a repeat pregnancy test and and ultrasound before taking any medication as it may be harmful to the fetus if any. Take care,
