What is Norethisterone?

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.

What are the benefits of Norethisterone tablets?

As well as helping to delay your period or to treat advanced breast cancer, Norethisterone 5mg tablets can be used to treat various menstrual cycle-related problems, such as:

  • Heavy bleeding during periods
  • Painful periods
  • Pre-menstrual symptoms
  • Abnormal or heavy uterine bleeding not related to a period
  • Endometriosis

What is the recommended dosage of Norethisterone?

The dosage of Norethisterone 5mg tablets that will be recommended to you by a doctor is dependent on what you are specifically taking this medication to treat.

If you take Norethisterone 5mg to delay your period – for example, if you want to delay your period because of a holiday or special occasion – you simply need to take one 5mg tablet three times a day. Start taking the treatment three days before the expected start of your period and keep taking the tablets until you are ready to resume your period. Your period will return between two to three days after stopping the tablets. You should not use Norethisterone for two straight weeks to delay your period.

Are there any side effects of Norethisterone?

The side effects of Norethisterone 5mg are generally quite rare, but like with most prescription medications, you may experience some side effects. The most commonly reported side effects of Norethisterone tablets include stomach aches, skin itching or rashes, changes in sex drive, nausea, headaches, dizziness, depression, fever or weight gain.

Other more extreme side effects include facial swelling and wheezing due to an allergic reaction; migraines; high blood pressure; thrombosis or jaundice and liver problems. You should speak to your doctor if you experience any of these negative effects of the medication and stop taking Norethisterone immediately.

Who can take it?

You will not be able to take Norethisterone tablets if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, or if you are under the age of 18. If you are allergic to Norethisterone's active ingredient, or any other ingredient, you should also avoid taking this medication.

In addition, if you have or have had breast, cervical, genital or ovarian cancer; liver tumours or other liver problems; undiagnosed abnormal vaginal bleeding; an inherited metabolic disorder (porphyria); jaundice, a rash or severe itching due to herpes during pregnancy; a severe arterial disease; or thrombosis you will not be suitable for this treatment as it may accelerate your symptoms and be harmful to your health.
