Hey folks, I have a simple situation about manipulating the time of my period but I want to provide all the details so I can get the best advice possible.
I met someone a few weeks ago and the next time I see them will be on Feb 23rd (through the 27th).
I have been really stressed out lately and my period this month came on January 28th, after an only 21 day cycle. I use an app that estimates the arrival of your period based on an average your 5 previous periods, and my next period is scheduled to come on, you guessed it, Feb 23rd (26 days post my previous period).
So, I either want to delay my period until after the 27th when I see this person (which would require a 31 day cycle, which is not super rare for me), or induce it to come around the 18th (so it would finish by the 23rd, and this would require a 21 day cycle).
(For reference, my last few periods have been in days: 21, 29, 28, 25, 47, 24, 34, 30, 28… so I am pretty irregular)
Ideally, I would like to just get it on the 18th so I can have it completely done by the 23rd.
My one issue is if I induce it to come early, and it wasn’t going to come until after my visit, will it end up coming on my visit? (For instance, if it was gonna come on the 28th, and I try to induce it, might it end up coming on the 25th, thereby being counter productive???)
I’m thinking of drinking a ton of parsley tea around day 18 in my cycle. Do you think that will have the effect of inducing by day 21 (even if my period would naturally come on day 30 or so)? Or will it just move the period up by a few days, so a period that would come on day 30 comes on day 26 (thereby coming during my visit instead of after and ruining everything)?
It’s obviously possible for my body to have a period after only 21 days (although 21 is the shortest cycle I’ve ever had). Also, I’ve never tried parsley tea before.
Any thoughts? Anything else besides parsley tea? Is my timing right?
