  • The only thing I have heard that will work is if you are taking birth control pills to skip the sugar pills.

  • Vinegar? HAHA.....that will have no effect on your hormones. Yikes!
    IF you are taking birth control pills, take an extra 4 or 5 of them to postpone your period.
    I always wonder where people get those ideas...who told you about the vinegar?? Hahaha.

  • Oh....take more pills, ONE DAY AT A TIME, not all in one day. In other words,if you are going to a wedding in 5 days, take another 6 or 7 pills to make sure it won't start in 5 days. ....I have no idea what sugar pills are,tho,SleepingBeautee.
    Ahhhh,gee. Just don't use the Vinegar trick. LOL.

  • Birth control pills are the only thing that will delay it as far as I know. But you have to already be on them. If you are, just skip the sugar pills (the ones you take while on your period). And start a new pack instead. You won't have a period that month. You can continue like that for however long you like. I used to only have 2 periods a year. I would have some spotting in the 3rd month, but that's it. If you're not already on birth control pills, you're pretty much out of luck to stop it.
