Damn AF arrived today. Exactly four weeks before I'm due to fly to Egypt for a week of snorkelling, scuba diving, swimming and other stuff in the water in a small bikini and miles from a loo.

Does any wise MNer know if there is any tablets I could take to stop the next one happening and ruining my holiday??? Please???

Yes there are tablets you can take. I can't remember what they are called but if you see your GP then they should be able to help. Enjoy your holiday!

thanks luby... I shall ring GP tomorrow and make an appointment. Do you think I can get away with just seeing the nurse?

be aware of the side effects though before you take the pills. ask the doc what the pills may do as the pills are similar to contraceptives in that they will interupt the hormone cycle.
