Hi Doctor,
My last month menstrual cycle started on 31st November and normally it starts a few days ( 3 to 4 days ) earlier each month as compared to the last month. Now, due to a family function I need to be free during the period of 18th XXXXXXX to 4th Feb. In that case, could you please suggest a medication that I can take in the December month so that the December cycle is postponed to as many days possible, which in tern will shift the next cycle to second week of February? Also I normally work out in the gym, so do I need to stop going to the gym while taking the medication? I have a breastfeeding toddler too, hence I need a medicine that's safe for my baby.
Thanks & Regards,

Hi Doctor,
Kindly provide the prescription and dose. My pharmacist will deliver the medicine based on prescription image only. I don't have time to visit the doctor anytime soon. My sole purpose of visiting the website was to get an online prescription. Thank you.
