Description

Pills to stop your period

Norethisterone is a synthetic version of progesterone, a natural female sex hormone that sustains the lining of the womb. Normally, before a woman has a period, her progesterone levels fall. However, taking Norethisterone will sustain the womb lining and delay a period until the tablets are stopped. If you are travelling and would like to buy norethisterone from Star pharmacy, please fill in the questionnaire and our pharmacist will get back to you. If treatment is suitable, a supply can be made, however, if you do not meet the eligibility, a supply will not be made and a full refund will be given.

What is Norethisterone used for?

Norethisterone has several uses. It can safely be used as medication to delay your period, sufficient to cover the duration of travel, where it would otherwise be inconvenient.

Norethisterone was first released as the branded medicine Utovlan, however, it is now available as a generic treatment following the patent expiry of Utovlan.

Norethisterone is also present in some contraceptive pills and hormone replacement therapies for the menopause. Norethisterone period delay tablets should not be used for hormone replacement and do not offer any contraceptive cover – nor are they a form of emergency contraception. 

Norethisterone dosage

Norethisterone should be taken three times daily, starting three days before your period is due until you wish your period to resume. Your next period after Norethisterone will be experienced within two to three days. Norethisterone should not be taken if you are pregnant. It does not have any special dietary measures; its absorption and effects are not changed by food or alcohol.

How can I delay my period?

There are no non-medicinal alternatives to period delay.

An alternative way to delay your period if you are taking the combined contraceptive pill already is to run two strips back to back without taking your seven-day break.

Alternatively, you can see your GP and discuss other options, such as the hormonal implant or mini pill.

If you are already taking the contraceptive pill, this can normally be used to delay your period, so Norethisterone will be unsuitable for you. You should always read the patient information leaflet with your contraceptive pill before running pill packs together.

Women who take the contraceptive pill can generally run two packs together to delay their period without consequence. If you are in any doubt, contact your GP.
