Hi,
Thanks for posting in HCM.
I understand your concern.
You can use Norethisterone medication for postponing the periods. You may take it for 3 or 5 days, following which you would get your periods.
It would not affect your fertility or cause any hormonal imbalance. The dates of your cycle would change and hence you need to time accordingly if you are expecting to conceive.
Hope the information provided would be helpful.
All the best.

HI
Well come to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, I actually do not advise my all the patient for any hormone medicine if no pathological reasons are there, it should always be avoided late or sooner one has to pay something in form of some symptoms or disease if hormone medicine taken for no reason (Medical) hope this information helps.
