Delaying a period

Patient

Q: Hi, i'm 18, and I'm going on holiday at the end of June with my boyfriend, we're going for 3 weeks so i'm likely to have my period out there so I'm looking for a way to delay it till I get home.

I was wondering if you could give me some information on Utovlan - is this the best option to use and is it guaranteed to work ?
Also when do you start taking it and how often?

If you have any other suggestions on what I could do plase let me know , I have no medical problems or history and am not allergic to anything.

Thanks :)
