Delay menstrual cycle

I've been trying to get my periods earlier than the actual date I'm supposed to get them, I.e. 26. I'm trying natural remedies like eating papaya and drinking green tea. But I haven't gotten them yet, is it okay for me to postpone them now? By eating tablets ? Will it affect me in any way?

Hello, this dietary change can make you have periods but it is not predictable and there are no studies which can confirm this and prescribes the actual doses of the dietary items. Now you can take progesterone pills to delay your menstrual bleeding, they can cause breakthrough bleeding(not in all) as a side effect and can cause irregular periods for next one or two months and your regular period date may change. Please consult your gynecologist for the prescription.
