Question: How can I jump start my period??

 vabs - Fri Aug 20, 2004 11:19 am

I want to give my period a little push so I can start now and not on my vacation. I should start anytime but with my record this will be the time I'm 3 days late and ruin my vacation. I have no risk of pregnancy.

If you call your doctor, she can tell you how to do this with your birth control pills. I don't genrally thinks its a healthy thing to do, but doing it once probably wont be a big deal
