About Norethisterone Period Delay Tablets

Norethisterone is pill which you can take to delay your period temporarily. This a prescription only medication that mimics the female hormone progesterone. It’s a good option if you are NOT using any oral form of contraception.

How It Works

  • You start the pills 3 days before you expect your period to start, and can take it up to 17 days
  • You take one pill 3 times a day.
  • Your period will start 3 days after you stop taking medication.
  • You can delay you period for 17 days in total.

Please note: When norethisterone is used to delay your period, it does NOT act as a form of contraception. Alternative methods should be considered (such as condoms).

Who can take Norethisterone?

Norethisterone may be suitable if you are:

  • aged 16 to 54
  • can predict when your period is due
  • you need to delay your period for a special event/occasion
  • you are NOT on the contraceptive pill
  • you are NOT pregnant
  • you have NO abnormal bleeding
  • you have NO history of angina or blood clots

Does Norethisterone have Side Effects?

For vast majority of women, norethisterone is a safe and effective treatment to delay their period. However, like any medication it can have side effects which include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Skin problems
  • Increase risk of blood clots– this is particularly important if flying

Your pharmacist will explain in more detail about the side effects and check if you are suitable to take it. You should always read the patient information leaflet before starting any medication.

Norethisterone & the Combined Contraceptive Pill

If you are taking the combined pill, then you CANNOT use norethisterone to delay your period. The good news is that you can still delay your period by taking two packs of pills together without the 7-day break. Please ask the pharmacist for more information on how to do this.

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
