Brief Answer: Postponement is advisable at this stage. Detailed Answer: Hi Ms. XXXX, Thanks for posting your query. You would need at least a week of prior treatment to advance your period. This is because withdrawal bleeding can be induced when the endometrium is adequate and is seen usually 3-7 days after completion of treatment, given usually for a minimum of 5 days. Though high hormone doses may be effective in a short period, it cannot be accurately predicted. Since you do not have so much time now, the best thing would be to postpone your period through using one of the progesterone preparations available under the prescription of a specialist until such time as is convenient for you, but not exceeding a treatment period of 20 days. This is to avoid future menstrual irregularities. Please consult a gynecologist in person for proper prescription. Hope I have clarified your query. Please feel free to contact for further clarifications. I will be happy to help. regards, Shanti.V.
