Menstrual Pill

I am due to get my periods in a few days and would like to know if there is possibly a pill i can take which will stop my period for a day or 2 if i do get my menstrual cycle.

Basically there are 2 days which i cannot have my menstrual cycle.

If there is such a pill would i be able to buy it over the counter or would i need a presciption.

Bronwyn is right. You have to start at least a week before your period, unless you are on the Pill.

If you are currently on the pill, you can just skip the red ones (sugar pills) and carry on with the white/yellow ones. When you want to get your period you just take the red ones again. Also, there is a pill that a docotr can give you, but you need to take it about a week and a half before your expected period, and even then, it might not work.

My Advice, dont mess with your cycle. It wasnt meant to stop and once you start messing with it you could be sorry later.
