      One of the ways to prepone your menstruation is to take oral contraceptive pills. If you want to have periods near the date of 30th October, take oral contraceptive pills 10 days before 30th. Take 1 pill daily for 7 days and stop. You may notice withdrawal bleeding within 2 to 3 days. Natural home remedies may also work well. Eat three to four slices of ripe papaya daily 10 days ahead of expected date of menses. Chemical carotene present in papaya helps to induce early menses. Papaya is known to produce heat in the body. Eat sesame seeds are also useful alternative. Eat them with jaggery daily for few days.

      Assuming that your period date may also be irregular this time you may take chance to prepone your date. However, there is no surety that period may come early. Eat 2 to 3 papaya slices three times in a day. Papaya contains ingredients that are known to bring menses early. Start eating papaya from today itself.

      Many women have irregular periods sometime or other. However, when it is regularly irregular there may be some underlying cause which needs to be searched. Anemia, polycystic ovarian disease, hypothyroidism, etc are frequent causes. Besides, changes in hormones may also cause irregularity in periods. If you have anemia, eat diet rich in iron. You have to take medicines if you have hypothyroidism. For PCOD, reduce your weight as one of the causes is obesity. Eat few slice of papaya daily as it is effective in regularizing menstruation. If you are exercising a lot, try to avoid over exercise. Eat plenty of vegetables and fruits as they contain plenty of vitamins and minerals.

      While natural herbs and foods are effective in preponment of menstruation, they do not completely guarantee the result. In comparison to that, birth control pills are far better to prepone or postpone menses. If you are taking birth control pill, take it from 8th or 9th of April for three to four days. Stop the pill and you may have bleeding in next 2 to 3 days. This is called breakthrough bleeding; the flow is limited which may last for one or two days. However, if you are determined to take only natural remedy, than eat jaggery with one teaspoon of sesame seeds daily for few days. Also keep taking papaya and turmeric.

      There are several reasons for absence of menstruation. If you are sexually active you should check for pregnancy. A simple morning urine sample for pregnancy test may be helpful. Check the sample in a pathological laboratory. If pregnancy is ruled out, the other frequent and common cause is hormonal imbalance. If the delay is for the first time, wait for few more days and as the hormones get balanced, the flow may resume. Eat unripe papaya. Cut few pieces of papaya and prepare its salad. Sesame seeds, fenugreek seeds etc are also useful home remedies to resolve menstrual problems.
