Possibly: people have certainly advocated its use in regulating periods as well as providing relief for heavy menstrual periods. so it's certainly possible that it might work to delay a period in some people (esp if cycles typically irregular).

Not likely...: Consider the possibility of pregnancy first. Would check a pregnancy screen at this time. Relative to your gynecologic question, a high intake of cod liver oil by pregnant women is associated with a nearly fivefold increased risk of gestational hypertension.
