How To Delay A Period Naturally
How many days a period is likely to get delayed while breastfeeding? Can you please suggest any method to induce periods?
Up to 6 months: If you are breastfeeding exclusively, then your period may not return for up to 6 months. This is different for everyone, however, and it could return as early as 4 weeks after delivery. If you would like to have a period (which is not medically necessary), then you could consider taking a birth control pill which would allow you a week of withdrawal bleeding/period. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Day 14 but it varies: In an idealized 28-day cycle ovulation occurs 14 days after the first day (cd 14) of the last mentrual period.

Can I double up on birth control pills to delay a period by a week or two? I just started taking the pill this month, and am just taking active pills
Stay on active pills: You don't need to take more than one pill per day. You just need to stay on the active pills. As long as you stay on the active pills and skip the placebo (sugar) pills, you shouldn't get your period. Therefore you may need to go from the active pills of one pack to the active pills of another. You can definitely control when you menstruate. ...Read more
