Nothing effective: Assuming you are correct in your timing, the only thing that will delay your period is pregnancy. That is clearly not the solution you are looking for. For future reference, you would need to start the pill, ideally, 2 months ahead of time and at least at the beginning of your cycle.

Blood From Ulcer?: Your boyfriend should see his GI physician. The source of the blood needs to be discovered. Most bleeding ulcers resolve with medical therapy but recurrent GI bleeding requires repeat upper endoscopy.. Also, this bleeding may be totally unrelated to his prior ulcer and may require colonoscopy if the upper endoscopy is normal.

Let's See?: Always read the label and know what hand how much you are taking. Acetaminophen/tylenol in adults is up to 2 grams a day (2, 000 milligrams). Less to none if there is liver disease or other problems and elderly. Less to none if significant alcohol intake or ingestion of other liver toxic meds/drugs. You should discuss with your pcp/gi doctor. Excedrin has Aspirin too? Stop and check!

No, you can: You can get pregnant. Pco is a condition where you don't ovulate regularly, but with treatment you can conceive. See a doctor to be sure you really have polycystic ovary syndrome.
