How to delay your period

Period delay tablets are employed to suspend menstrual bleeding. It can also be useful in reducing the severity of symptoms related to premenstrual syndrome, such as heavy bleeding and pain. The period delay treatment available here at is called Norethisterone, and contains a man-made hormone which replicates the function of progesterone in the body. Norethisterone pills can help to delay the user's period by up to 17 days.

The pain and discomfort which can often accompany periods is well-known, and does not need to be detailed. Sometimes, this can be a real hindrance to everyday life, and even more so if you have an important occasion coming up, such as an exam, a wedding, or a holiday abroad. Pain and bleeding can be distracting, or make someone feel self-conscious.

Tablets for period delay can help to push the user’s scheduled period back, so that they can enjoy or concentrate on the matter at hand more easily. They are taken three times a day, for the three days before a period is due to begin. The course is then continued as instructed by their doctor. Norethisterone pills can delay periods for one or two weeks, but generally for no longer than 17 days in total.

Norethisterone works by altering the regular menstrual cycle. In the female body, certain processes take place each month to prepare it for pregnancy. One of these is the build up of the lining along the uterine wall (endometrium). This then sheds during menstruation, and is discharged through bleeding.

Shortly before this takes place, levels of the hormone progesterone in the body fall. This is the signal for the uterine lining to shed. The synthetic hormone in Norethisterone tablets works in a similar way to progesterone, and its presence in the body convinces it that the shedding does not yet need to occur, thereby delaying the user’s period.

Due to its regulatory qualities, this pill can also help to soothe symptoms of premenstrual tension such as pain, heavy bleeding and feelings of bloatedness.
