My wife had her period on 26th sept'2017. After period she observed vaginal bleeding again on 7th to 8th Oct'17. Her period was due on 26th Oct but still her period not started. Whitish vaginal discharge was observed from 27th to 30th Oct. Today urine pregnancy test also done and found negative. Now we are planning for a pilgrimage from 5th to 12th nov. so we dont want period to start in between. Kindly advice some medicine to delay the period.

Brief Answer:
Tablet Regestrone

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Irregular periods can be due to hormonal disturbance or local lesions in uterus like fibroid or cervix like polyp.
To delay the periods, she should start the tablet Regestrone 5 mg twice a day from today onwards till she wants to delay the periods.
Periods will occur within 5-7 days of stopping the tablet.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Cycle cannot be calculated

Hi dear,

When one has irregular bleeding, then the cycle days and ovulation cannot be predicted.
The vaginal discharge can be due to altered hormonal disturbance.
