You CANNOT

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.

You CANNOT stop your periods once they have started .

You can try taking tablet tranexamic acid but its not guaranteed it will stop.

You can postpone or prepone your periods before they have started but not once they have stated.

You can postpone your smear appointment though.
