Norethisterone 5mg is a simple to take pill that can delay your period safely for up to 14 days. Most women will be able to use Norethisterone to delay their periods, apart from those who are already taking the contraceptive pill. The active ingredient (norethisterone) is a type of synthetic hormone called progestogen and it imitates the effects that natural hormones have on your body. By doing this, it can maintain your hormone levels to prevent the normal drop of progesterone that causes your period.

You can buy Norethisterone tablets online from HealthExpress for period delay, but as patient safety is very important to us, we'll ask you to complete a quick, completely free and confidential consultation first. The consultation will be reviewed by one of our registered doctors to ensure that this medicine is right for you to take.
