Details

Medical information
Some women may wish to postpone their period for an important event, travel or exams. While it is not 100% guaranteed, it normally works if instructions are followed correctly.
For those who are currently taking combined oral contraceptive pills (the pill), the next pack can be started straightaway after the first pack without having the 7 days break. However, it should only be done occasionally. If you are unsure, you should check with a doctor or pharmacist for advice.


For those who are not taking the combined oral contraceptive pills (the pill), a hormone tablet called norethisterone can usually be taken to delay period.

Norethisterone is a progestogen hormone which mimics the action of the progestogen hormone normally presents in our body. It helps to maintain lining of the womb and prevent menstruation.


Medicinesbymailbox provides Norethisterone 5mg tablets. For specific product information, please visit the treatment page here.
