Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you want to postpone your periods, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for prescription of pills for postponement of periods. These should be started atleast 5 days before your scheduled/expected period dates to be effective. You need to continue taking them for as long as you want to postpone the periods. You will get periods after 5-7 days of stopping the pill use. Visit your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation and assistance. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating gynecologist and report any unusual symptoms immediately.
Take care.
