What is Norethisterone?

Norethisterone is the only tablet in the UK specifically designed to delay your period. Containing the synthetic hormone progesterone of the same name, it helps to imitate the natural hormones in your body into prolonging your period and is available in a low dosage of 5mg.

The recommended amount of time is up to two weeks with your period starting in-between 2-5 days after stopping the tablets. If you wish to start your period before the course has finished, you can do so by simply stopping, and you can keep your remaining tablets aside for future use (always double check the expiry date before taking). Norethisterone is not only highly effective, but completely safe and a sure-fire way to delay your period before a special occasion.[1]

If you are already taking a contraceptive pill of some sort, then it is advised not to use Norethisterone, and it is possible you can delay your period with a number of oral contraception options (although do note that this is not feasible with the mini pill).

How does Norethisterone work?

Norethisterone is a synthetic progesterone hormone that manipulates your body into prolonging your period. When you are about to come on, your body's progesterone levels drop causing your period and the symptoms that accompany it such as menstrual cramping, mood swings and, ultimately, the bleeding. Additional progesterone means the lining of the uterus is maintained.

As soon as you stop the tablets, the progesterone levels drop again causing the lining to break down resulting in a withdrawal bleed otherwise referred to as your period. By taking Norethisterone 5mg, it can prevent the normal decline of progesterone allowing you to alter the timing of your period for up to 2 weeks.

What are the benefits of using Norethisterone?

The most common benefit of Norethisterone is to delay your period, of which it is highly effective in doing so, but there are many other benefits as well…

  • Treating advanced breast cancer
  • Reduces menstrual pains
  • Lowers heavy bleeding
  • Regulates abnormal bleeding
  • Can treat endometriosis
  • Available in a low dosage
  • Can be used as Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

We offer Norethisterone period delay tablets to buy in convenience, so if you're looking for medication to help treat endometriosis, cancer or hormone replacement therapy, please visit your doctor as the dosages of progesterone you need may differ.[2]

How to take Norethisterone tablets

To delay your period, ideally you should start taking Norethisterone 5mg, 3-4 days before your period is due. Using the tablets is simple:

  • One tablet can be taken with or without food three times a day
  • Normally, women take one in the morning, one at lunch then one in the evening
  • Continue taking your tablets for up to two weeks
  • You can stop your course at any point if you want your period to start
  • Your period will then typically start within 2-4 days of stopping Norethisterone

What dosages are available for Norethisterone?

Norethisterone is available in the form of 5mg tablets that are taken orally. This is the recommended dosage for Norethisterone that has been clinically proven in the UK to be the maximum effectiveness whilst posing the least risk of side effects.

What are the side effects of Norethisterone?

The side effects of Norethisterone 5mg are rare as the dosage is fairly low, and the way you take the tablets is stable and for a short amount of time. A small percentage of women may experience side effects, but these tend to be light, manageable and temporary. The most commonly reported side effects of Norethisterone tablets include:

  • Stomach aches,
  • Skin itching or rashes
  • Changes in sex drive
  • Nausea,
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness

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. If any of these do occur or you experience any other health complications, please ensure you speak to your doctor as soon as possible and stop taking Norethisterone immediately.

What are the interactions/precautions when using Norethisterone?

Norethisterone is generally suitable for women over the age of 18 who require an effective period delay method. On the other hand, there may be certain conditions that may prevent the use of this medication. Some of these may include:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • If you are allergic to the synthetic ingredient norethisterone
  • If you have high levels of fat in the blood
  • Circulation issues such as blood clots
  • Have suffered from a heart attack, stroke or angina
  • If you suffer from jaundice
  • Problems with your liver
  • Tumours of the liver, breasts, womb or ovaries or irregular vaginal bleeding

It is advised to mention during your consultation if any of these apply to you, to establish if Norethisterone is suitable for you to order.
