Is there a medicine a doctor can give to make my period come a few days or a week early this month?

AFAIK you can delay it but I don't think they will prescribe anything to make it arrive earlier.

Damn. Thanks though!

There is a drug, but it can take up to two weeks to have an effect, and they only tend to prescribe to women who don't have a regular cycle and need to have a start date for fertility treatment.

It's to go on holiday so I doubt they will give it. Never mind ️xx

Why don't you take the one to delay it instead? That's quite easily done.

I got something to delay my period when I went to Florida a few years back.

My doctor gives me norethisterone (may be spelt ŵrong!) to delay my period for holidays. He didn't bat an eyelid when I asked him for something.

That was an option but my mum said it made her bloat terribly? How did you all find it?

The only effect it had for me was the lack of my period.
