When is period delay useful?

We understand that sometimes having your period can interfere with those Special Occasions you cannot afford to miss. Either for your Honeymoon or that special Romantic Getaway you had planned. Sometimes it can stop you from enjoying your holiday or stop you from conducting important activities. Whatever the reason, our Doctors are on hand to provide medication suited for Period Delay with one to one expert advice.

Methods of Period Delay

There is no guaranteed way of delaying your period. If you are currently taking Contraceptive pills, you can achieve a delay in your period by following the steps below.

Synthetic Progestogen

If you are not taking any Oral Contraceptives, the Doctor can prescribe a synthetic Progestogen called Norethisterone (generic utovlan). Progestogens are synthetic compounds which are similar to the naturally occurring hormone Progesterone.

Norethisterone Period Delay

Norethisterone is a clinically effective medication specially created for period delay. It is highly effective in providing a delay in your period. Our Doctors can prescribe Norethisterone to stop your period for up to 10 days. This will offer you the flexibility of postponing your period in a safe and effective manner.

Oral Contraceptives and Period delay tablets

Doctors cannot prescribe other Period Delay medication if you are currently taking Oral Contraceptives. You can achieve Period Delay by following the advice below. Alternatively our Doctors can advise you on the best and safest method of achieving Period Delay.

Achieving Period Delay with Contraceptive

You can take your regular Contraceptive pill back to back, omitting the usual 7 day pill free interval. Please see below for further information.

 

Monophasic Pills such as Microgynon:-

  • 21 tablets followed by 7 days without taking the pill which results in a regular bleed (period)
  • For Period Delay – Take 21 tablets as usual, immediately start a next 21 day packet omitting the 7 day pill free interval.
  • This will delay your period in a safe and effective manner.

 

For Everyday Pills such as Microgynon ED:-

  • 21 active pills followed by 7 inactive/Dummy pills.
  • For period delay – Take the 21 active pills, then start a new cycle of active pills omitting the 7 inactive/dummy pills.
  • This will delay your period in a safe and effective manner.

The NHS Choices website has an in depth explanation which will help to delay your period Alternatively you can speak to a Pharmacist or Doctor for further advice.

Pregnancy and Period Delay

Norethisterone delays your period effectively without providing protection against pregnancy. It is advised to use additional contraceptive measures such as condoms.

If you are using the Contraceptive pill, you will be protected from Pregnancy even if you use it in a manner to delay your Period. It is advised to speak to the Doctor regarding this to maintain protection.

How Long is it safe to delay your period for?

The general consensus for healthy women with no predisposing conditions, is to delay your period for up to two weeks with Norethisterone unless otherwise stated by your Doctor. If you have certain conditions such as Endometriosis, abnormal or painful periods, the Doctor can recommend medication to provide relief using Norethisterone or Oral Contraceptives.

Our Doctors provide medication to achieve a ten day delay using Norethisterone

Is Period Delay Dangerous?

It is generally not dangerous to delay your menstruation for short durations of time with Norethisterone. It is not recommended to delay your period for more than 2 weeks with Norethisterone. If you are taking Oral Contraceptives to delay your period, it is recommended to only take back to back pills once unless otherwise stated by your Doctor.

How Long does the effect of medication last for Period Delay?

It can take three to fours days after stopping Norethisterone to experience your menstrual period. Your next period bleed may be heavier but this is generally uncommon. You can always contact the Doctor for further advise and reassurance.
