Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Two weeks is a too long time to delay the periods.Still if she wants then she will have to start taking hormone tablets progesterone- Tab. Norethisterone 10mg twice daily at least five days before her due date and will have to continue it until she wants her periods back.
