Aleve (naproxen) won't help: Nothing can slow/delay a menstrual period (mother nature rules!).

There is no scientific evidence whatsoever of any harmful effects from going months without bleeding. I think this is because many women are taught as girls that the period is nature's way of "cleaning out" the system. ...Read more

Home pregnancy test: A urine pregnancy test done correctly will give a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (or when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period.

If a woman has her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and the test is not needed yet. ...Read more
