FAQ

  • Can I buy period delay tablets over the counter?

    Period delay tablets are not available over the counter. You need to have a prescription to get period delay tablets.

This can be reviewed by our doctors who will prescribe period delay tablets for you if it is safe to do so.

  • Are period delay tablets safe?

    Norethisterone is a medicine used to delay periods. It is commonly prescribed for this but should not be used on a regular basis. It can cause headaches, breast pain and nausea but it can also cause more serious side effects like blood clots. This is why it is not safe for everyone to take, such as women who have had a blood clot in the past.

    For a full list of side effects, see the patient information leaflet.

  • What is the name of the tablet to delay periods?

    Norethisterone is the drug used to delay periods. It is also available as the brand name Utovlan. Norethisterone is also used to treat many other medical conditions such as heavy periods and breast cancer. 

  • What are the side effects of norethisterone?

    Side effects of norethisterone include spotting, headaches, bloating and breast pain. See the patient information leaflet for a full list of side effects. Other, more serious side effects include an increased risk of blood clots.  

    Some women do experience side effects, but this is uncommon as the tablets are usually only used for a brief time. Prolonged usage increases the chances of side effects.

  • How to delay your period?

    To delay your period using norethisterone the dose is usually to take one tablet three times a day. Start taking the tablets 3 days before your period is due to start. After stopping the tablets, you should wait around 3 days before you expect your period to start. If you do not have a period after stopping the tablets, you should check with your doctor in case you are pregnant.

  • Can I get pregnant on norethisterone?

    If you use norethisterone to delay your period, it does not act as a contraceptive. This means that you can get pregnant if you have unprotected sex while taking norethisterone.

  • What if my period does not return after 3 days?

    Usually, your period will start within 3 days of stopping the tablets. If it does not start after 3 days, you should speak to your doctor to check whether you are pregnant.
