Norethisterone is a synthetic progestin - a man-made hormone similar to progesterone.
It is used as a treatment for heavy or painful periods, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), endometriosis, and to delay your period for special occasions and holidays.
Norethisterone is only available on prescription and cannot be bought over the counter. However, you can buy Norethisterone online followin an online consultation.
All you need to do is fill in our online medical form for our doctor to assess if Norethisterone is suitable for you.
During the menstrual cycle, the level of progesterone hormone in the body 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 (bleeding).
Norethisterone keeps the levels of progesterone high, tricking the body into thinking it is pregnant. As a result, the uterine 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 this limit, or are taking a combined contraceptive pill, we suggest contacting your doctor as there may be alternatives better suited for you to delay your period.
You should start taking Norethisterone 3 days before your period is due to start for maximum effectiveness.
The usual doseage is one pill three times a day.
Swallow the tablets whole with a glass of water.
Norethisterone tablets can be taken with or without food.
Our doctors can prescribe a maximum of 42 tablets, which can delay your period for up to 14 days.
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.
Do not take Norethisterone if you are pregnant.
If you forget to take Norethisterone when you should, take it as soon as you remember. Continue to take Norethisterone at the usual time.
