Hi, I'm due to start my period on the 3rd November which is the same day I'm flying out to New York. What would you recommend for me to take in order to delay this until I get back from holiday?

It is really too late to try to manipulate your period as it is already mid cycle. You should try to do this at least a month ahead of time. If you start a birth control pill now you may be able to delay your cycle a week or too. But it has a good chance of not working at all.
