Exclamation Delay of period?! - HELP!!!

Hi all!! I was wondering if there is a way to delay my period, or stop it quickly once it starts?! I will be seeing my boyfriend for the first time in over a year, along with traveling across country!! At the same time, I will be my time of the month!! I'm not currently on b/c, but my gyno gave me Micronor after my annual the other day! I was wondering if I could start taking them now until after my trip! Also, I was taking medroxyprogesterone after my endo surgery to stop my periods for awhile. I just stop taking them last month (6/21), and I was wondering if I could take them again to delay my period, which should start sometime next week (6-28, 29, or 30)?! My only other option would be to wait until it starts, and get a depo-provera shot to stop it quickly! I did that once before, and it stop my period a couple of days after I got the shot! But I haven't been on the depo shot in over a year! Would any of these things be possible to do?! Please help!! In need of advice badly, very desperate at this point!! Thanks in advance!!

If you doctor gave you the pill just the other day, what was his answer to all your questions? Can you start the pill asap?? I don't know much about pills, but I believe there is a way to delay your period while on them, and also....maybe you won't even start your period on schedule if you start taking them usually doesn't start until you take the sugar/water pills....

someone here will be able to help!!

Call your GYN and be HONEST!! He/She will understand--they've heard it all before, that's why they're there. You'll also need good advice on birth control as it takes the pill a while to kick in. Call NOW to maximize your success!!
