I started by period today (Sunday at lunchtime) and I really want it to end by Thursday. Is there any way to speed up the process?

Unless you're on the pill there is no way of doing this. If you are on the pill, skip the sugar pills or start taking your new pack now. And even that isn't guaranteed to work ...

I just posted a question, can you douche during your period to make it end sooner. If you can find that discussion hopefully there will be an answer soon.

Douching is not good anytime. The vagina is a self-cleaning organ and douching will upset the flora balance and can cause uterine or vaginal infections.
