Is there any way to make your period start early?
Hi, is there any way to make your period start earlier or make it lighter? I have a gymnastics competition and we can't wear shorts and I have no idea what to do. Anybody know what to do?

HI!
IF you were my patient, I would advise you that your period can be regulated with oral contraceptives.  Usually it is easier to delay it than to bring it on early.  To get a prescription you will need to see a doctor, but unless you are 21 or older, you shouldn't need to have the full exam and pap.  
Good luck!
