Period Delay

For those who are more than 12 years old, Norethisterone tablets can be taken to delay periods short-term.

About Period Delay:

Norethisterone tablets can be taken to delay periods for a short time. This can be useful for people wanting to ensure their period doesn't come at an inopportune time such as while on a holiday or for a special event such as a wedding or school ball.  You can delay a period by starting to take the tablets at least 3 days before the start of a period and continue for as long as needed (as long as you want it delayed for). A period bleed will normally start around 2-3 days, possibly longer, after stopping the tablets. 

We can supply tablets to delay a period for up to 17 days. If period delay of less than 17 days is required, then the tablets are taken for fewer days with less tablets needed.
