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.
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).
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.
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…
