I come on my last night and my new boyfriend is coming

Customer Question

I come on my period last night and my new boyfriend is coming round tonight is there anything I can take to stop it for 24 hours. Like the contraception pill or anything?

Hello, I am Dr Helen, a UK doctor.

I'm afraid that because your period has now started there is nothing you can do or take to stop it continuing.
The pill can stop a period coming but you have to already be taking it well before the period is due.
The period needs to run its course now.
If you have sex whilst you are on your period you can still become pregnant so you still need to use some kind of birth control such as condoms.
Best wishes.
