Is there any genuine ways of bringing on a period that is late?

I have tried not thinking about it.
Wearing light coloured knickers.

Go on holiday
Wear White trousers
Plan a night of steamy sex
Stay with a friend for a night. On her crisp White sheets

All works for me

Doing a pg test is a cert for me.

A warm bath might help.

Exercise is supposed to do something, apparently.

I am still not 100% well so any movement at the moment is tiring me out. I need to come on now or not until Sunday afternoon but no, what is the betting it is right in the middle of tomorrow when it is inconvenient hmm.

Well it does for me! Not sure why... Of course, it could be me just craving crap when it's imminent...

Going on holiday does it for me every time. The only time I've ever not had a period on holiday is when I was pregnant.

Meglet Fri 26-Aug-11 15:52:21

Go for a run.

TheOriginalFAB Fri 26-Aug-11 15:52:35

Serves me right for being a day early for the last two months.

Orgasm. Alcohol. Exercise. Hot bath.

Not necessarily in that order.

TheOriginalFAB Fri 26-Aug-11 16:50:10

DH thinks I am barmy.

JanMorrow Fri 26-Aug-11 17:05:59

Sex or... self pleasuring ... seems to work sometimes!

To be honest, I just wanted to say self pleasuring.

Orgasm. The muscle contractions might get the cramping mechanism started.
