What is Norethisterone?

Norethisterone is a synthetic progestin - a man-made hormone similar to progesterone - which is used as a treatment for heavy or painful periods, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), endometriosis and to delay your period for special occasions and holidays.

During the menstrual cycle, the level of progesterone changes, affecting the lining of the uterus. When progesterone levels are high, the lining of the uterus is thick to allow an egg to plant itself ready for fertilisation. If the egg is not fertilised, the level of progesterone falls again and the lining of the uterus - along with the egg cell - are shed as a menstrual period.

Norethisterone keeps the levels of progesterone high, tricking the body into thinking it’s pregnant. As a result, the uterus lining is not shed and so a regular period bleed does not occur.

It can be safely prescribed to women between the ages of 18 and 54. If you are outside of this limit, or are taking a combined contraceptive pill, we suggest contacting your doctor as there may be alternatives better suited for you.

Please be aware that Norethisterone is not a form of contraception and will not protect you against unwanted pregnancy. You should use another form of contraception such as condoms while taking the medication.

Start this medication 3 days before your period is due to start for maximum effectiveness.

The usual dosage is One Three times a day with or without food. Our Doctors will prescribe a maximum of 30 tablets which can give you a 10-day period (bleed) free interval.

Your normal period should resume 2-3 days after taking the last tablet. If your period does not start after this time, please contact our Doctors or your regular GP for further advice and assistance.

Norethisterone is not a form of contraception and will not stop you from getting Pregnant. To avoid unwanted pregnancy we advise safe sex with the use of condoms.
