In brief: Are you taking BC?
Are you currently taking any kind of hormonal birth control like the pill, ring, or patch? If so, you can skip your period week and start the next month (either the next pack of pills, the next ring, patch, etc) a week early.
You may still experience some cramping and spotting during what would have been your regular period week. If not taking any of these, there is really nothing else you can do.
