Nope, you can't unless you are on birth control pills. If you're not on the pill then you just have to let nature take it's course.

I agree, you can't make your period come when you want or when you don't want unless you are on the bcp. Take care

There is a pressure point on the inside of your ankle that some people say can help make your period start. It is also used for inducing labor. It is about four finger widths from your inner ankle bone and is a tender spot. Apply moderate pressure for several seconds, rest and do it again. Let us know if it works for you.

How strange!!! I was sitting here reading through the boards and came upon this post about trying to get one's period to start. I read the post from WHITEHORSE about the pressure point on the leg, tried it, and 10 minutes later my period started!!! AMAZING!!! I always get small cramps a few hours before I start so I usually know when it's coming but not this time. Coincidence? Maybe.

Re: how can i get my period to start??????

I've noticed if you think about it a ton... it comes. It really sucks because most of the time I'm thinking about it in the way that "I hope it doesn't come" but that's thinking about it... so there it is... Maybe if you hang out with a lot of people who are on it too, there's something to be said for the "friends clock" like... everyone gets it at the same time.

I just tried the pressure point thing, and it totally worked for me. It's strange too , since I ALWAYS start in the morning, but it's 8 at night! lol

I wish we could just pick and choose when we wanted it to come and go! Wouldn't that be convenient... but we can't. You just gotta wait it out and what happens happens.
