Question A girlie question: How to make your period sooner?

Does anyone know how to make your period start sooner. I will probably get my period in 3-4 days, but I'd rather have it in a day or two. Do you know a way to do it? I had heard that taking aspirin could work, is it true?

Aspirin might help or Black Cohosh .Don't take them once your period starts though.

Don't know your situation romantically but for me having sex will bring it on early. Don't get the wrong idea you guys, I've been married for 17 years!

Hello all,

I have a question to this post's question. I don't have my periods regularly and am confused as to why you want to start sooner than you normally would?

i don't know your ages, mine is 42/43. I don't wish to have one and nature seems to be taking care of that. I will not deny that along with the pleasure of the absence of periods come the fun times of hot flashes, night sweats, and lack of libido!

I guess if you are miserable, than I don't have an answer, but if you are not....ENJOY !!

My sister-in-law drank green tea all day for a few days and her period came early. I tried the same thing the next month, and voila! it happened for me too.

Why would one want to start earlier?

I guess you might want to start earlier because you want to finish early-eg you might have a party to go to and want to wear white pants and you don't like wearing tampons etc etc etc.

an OTC (from your pharmacist) called Humphreys 11 causes you to start your period, usually within 24 hrs of taking it.

To answer everyone's questions about why I wanted my period earlier:
Because during the time that I will get my next period I will be visiting my boyfriend who lives in another country. So, I wanted to get done with my period before I see him. However, despite my efforts, I got my period 8 days late!! so now I will get my period on the same day that I meet him. I guess stressing about was bad luck or something.. My bf doesn't seem to care though, that's a relief. Thank you all for your responses!!
