Can I take aleve (naproxen) to temporarily halt my period for a special occasion? What would be the dosage?
Aleve (naproxen) won't help: Nothing can slow/delay a menstrual period (mother nature rules!). But if you want to try, use the stuff available over the counter which is usually of half strength, so you may have to double the dose. But do not take it more than twice a day and limit it to no more than 2-3 days. It can cause stomach ulcers! ...Read more
It only gets worse:
Some maybe able to bat again after few minutes (in teenager/early adulthood) but this time lengthens over the years--i have seen a man in his late 60s who reported about 48 hours. Men with high sex drive have short refract time, but very one gets this part longer and longer. :- ( (

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

Period at the start january for a few days then light in the middle but none this month yet. When would be good to take a test?
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

What for?: Maybe I'm not understanding, but do you mean you are on the 2nd day of your period? If you are having your period at the time when it should be, why would you think you are pregnant? If there is something unusual about this period, then a test can never hurt for reassurance. But it would be very unlikely to be pregnant when you've gotten your period. ...Read more
