- Intentionally delaying your period (sometimes referred to as menstrual manipulation) might feel like a controversial topic. Generally speaking, if your doctor has said it’s safe, then you can do so using hormonal birth control. However, there’s no guaranteed method of delaying your period.
- You can’t delay periods naturally, and there’s no evidence that eating certain foods can stop your period from coming.
- Before delaying your period, it’s important to speak to your health care provider to ensure that you’re doing so safely.
