Description

What is Utovlan and what is it used for?

Utovlan is a prescription medication used by women to delay the onset of a period. It is the branded version of the generic period delay pill Norethisterone. The active ingredient contained in Utovlan is the hormone ‘norethisterone’ – a synthetic version that mimics the naturally occurring sex hormone ‘progesterone’.

Utovlan period delay tablets require a prescription and are not available to buy over the counter. However, following a successful consultation with our pharmacist, a supply can be under a patient group direction here at Star pharmacy. If you are not suitable for treatment, a supply will not be made and a full refund will be given. 

Utovlan cannot be used to stop your period once it has already started.

How does Utovlan work?

When Utovlan is taken to delay a period, the norethisterone keeps progesterone levels high, which prevents your period from starting as it usually would.

Please note: Utovlan is not a contraceptive pill, so patients are advised to use other forms of protection if they wish to avoid getting pregnant.

Why delay your period?

Periods are healthy and a normal part of being a woman. However, there may be occasions where the timing isn’t ideal, and you’d rather it didn’t arrive when it was due.

If you’re thinking of delaying your period, ask yourself why you want to delay it, and for how long. Utovlan is designed for one-off, occasional use to postpone your period – not for preventing periods altogether. If you’re trying to delay your period simply because it’s too painful to handle, this is a sign you should visit your doctor.

We don’t recommend ‘alternative’ means of delaying your period – such as drinking gelatin or vinegar – since there’s no evidence that either option works.

What else can cause a missed period?

A missed period on occasion does not usually cause for concern. While it can be a sign of early pregnancy, it may also be caused by stress, extreme exercise, weight loss, low body fat, or a hormonal imbalance. Periods can also start to become irregular when the menopause starts. In rare cases, a missed period can be a sign of something more serious, like ovarian cancer. Speak to your doctor if you are worried

Utovlan dosage

Utovlan 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 utovlan will be experienced within two to three days. Utovlan 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 utovlan 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.
