What is Period Delay Treatment?
Period delay treatment is available for women who wish to postpone their period if it falls at an inconvenient time. This could include during exams, a special holiday or a major life event. Your doctor can prescribe you norethisterone, which is also available under the trade name Primolut N, which works in a similar way to the hormone progesterone. Taken at the right time, norethisterone works by preventing the lining of the womb from being shed, therefore delaying your period until you stop taking the tablets.
All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential. You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of waiting for an appointment.Read more

|Primolut N (norethisterone)|
Norethisterone works by preventing the lining of the womb from being shed, therefore delaying your period until you stop taking the tablets. You will need to take one norethisterone tablet three times a day, starting three days before your period is due to commence. Your period will be delayed whilst you are taking the tablets and should start 2 -3 days after you stop taking them. For occasional use only. Not to be used more than once in 4 months.
All medication can cause side effects. Details of all side effects, including rare side effects to be aware of, are listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL). When completing your medical questionnaire it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully. This is to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before prescribing. List all medicines you are already taking, including non-prescription and herbal medicines.
|Patient Information Leaflet|
Not suitable if you are taking the oral contraceptive pill, have diabetes or have a known intolerance to sugars, or have any surgery planned. Do not take if you have a history of blood clots, if you are pregnant, breast feeding or if you suffer from liver or kidney disease.
Women looking to delay their period more frequently should consider the contraceptive pill. Please discuss this with your regular GP who will assess you for suitability, as the contraceptive pill is only available to order online for patients that have already stabilised on this medication.

How effective is period delay treatment?
Norethisterone is usually very effective if you follow your doctor's prescribing instructions and take your tablets at the same time each day.
What happens after I stop taking norethisterone?
After you stop taking norethisterone you will usually have a menstrual bleed (period) 2-3 days after taking your last tablet. If you do not have a period, you must make sure that you are not pregnant before taking any more tablets.
