What is Utovlan?

Utovlan is a prescription medicine which contains a synthetic progestogen known as norethisterone. This hormone can help to regulate your period and reduce the pain you experience during your menstrual cycle.

The levels of progesterone fluctuate during the menstrual cycle. High levels of the hormone increase the viscosity of the lining of the womb (endometrium). This allows an egg to plant itself within the lining. If a pregnancy does not occur, the levels of progesterone in the body falls and the lining, along with the egg, is shed as a period.

In order to help expel the lining, the muscles surrounding the walls of the womb contract, restricting blood flow and oxygen to the tissue. When less oxygen is supplied to the tissue, chemicals are released which trigger pain.

Norethisterone works by sustaining the levels of progesterone in the body to trick the body into thinking fertilisation has occurred. As a result, painful contractions within the muscular walls of the womb are reduced and the lining is not shed as a regular period.

Utovlan is not a form of hormonal contraception and does not prevent pregnancy. You should use other forms of contraception, such as condoms, while taking this treatment to prevent unwanted pregnancies.

Moreover, you should not take Utovlan if you are already taking a combined contraceptive pill. However, it may be safe for you to take Utovlan alongside the mini pill. You should discuss with your doctor the contraceptive options available to you before you buy Utovlan online.


How to take?

In the treatment of heavy and painful periods, a typical regimen would be one tablet, three times a day (15mg) for 10 days.

Utovlan tablets can be taken with or without food. You should swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water.

Norethisterone should only be used occasionally. If you experience abnormal vaginal bleeding or regularly heavy and severely painful periods, consult your doctor.


Side effects and cautions of using Utovlan

All medicines carry the risk of side effects, though not everybody gets them. Understanding and being vigilant of the side effects associated with your medicine is important.

Utovlan may not be suitable if you:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Diabetes
  • Have had a previous history of blood clots or circularity issues
  • Liver or kidney dysfunction
  • Unexplained chronic chest pain, shortness of breath or cough
  • Untreated Endometrial Hyperplasia

If you suffer from high blood pressure, we recommend contacting your doctor to ensure your blood pressure is within the recommended range.

You should not take Utovlan if you are taking a combined contraceptive pill. However, it may be safe for you to take Utovlan if you are taking a single hormonal contraceptive pill, also known as a “mini pill”. Speak to your doctor before taking any new medication to ensure it is safe for you.

This product contains lactose and therefore may not be suitable if you are lactose intolerant.

Like all medications, Utovlan carries the risk of side effects. It is important to understand the risks associated with your medication by reading the patient information leaflet which is enclosed with your treatment.

If you experience the following side effects, please stop taking the medication and seek medical attention:

  • Bloating
  • Breakthrough bleeding
  • Changes or pain in the breasts
  • Chest pain or sudden shortness of breath
  • Dizziness
  • Jaundice - yellowing of the skin
  • Migraines or persistent headaches

  • Stomach ache
  • Unusual swelling

If you have any concerns while taking this medication, our doctors and pharmacists are more than happy to help you with any query you may have.


Frequently asked questions

What should I do if I forget to take Utovlan when I should?

If you forget to take Utovlan when you should, take it as soon as you remember and continue to take Utovlan as you normally would. Do not take more Utovlan tablets to make up for the dose you missed.

If you have trouble remembering when to take your medicine, try setting a reminder on your phone.

What should I do if I take too much Utovlan?

If you accidentally take too much Utovlan, speak to your doctor right away.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Utovlan?

Alcohol consumption is unlikely to reduce the effectiveness of Utovlan. However, it may exacerbate side effects such as nausea or vomiting.

Always drink alcohol responsibly. Avoid drinking more than the recommended 14 units of alcohol per week.

Will Utovlan impact my ability to drive or operate machinery?
