You can't . . .: I'm not sure I understand your question. You can't "make" your period come in a day if your body isn't ready, although you can ask your family doc for progesterone challenge to see if you'll bleed in 5-10 days. However, you can certainly delay your period by taking birth control pills. Best to address your concerns w/your family doc or re-word your question on this site. Good luck!

Not consistently: Not on a consistent basis, but if it's happened once or twice its likely not to worry about. I'm also assuming you mean when not on ocp or hormonal medication.

It can be: If there is no blood in the stool, vomiting, fever, weight loss, travel history, or other associated symptoms, this is unlikely to be a significant problem. Review your diet to see if there is anything new. Sometimes we recommend eliminating one food group at a time (such as dairy) to see if that makes a difference. If any other symptoms occur or not improving, please discuss with your doctor.
