Period Delay

At The Health Dispensary, we understand that having your period can be inconvenient or disrupt important plans. Whether it’s a holiday, special event, or sports competition, our Period Delay Medicine Service provides a safe and effective way to delay your period.


What is Period Delay Medicine?


Period delay medicine, commonly known as Norethisterone, is a prescription medication that women can use to delay menstruation. It works by maintaining progesterone levels in the body, preventing the shedding of the womb lining, and thereby delaying the period.


How Does It Work?


Norethisterone is normally taken three times a day, starting three days before your expected period. You can continue taking the tablets for up to 14 days, after which your period should begin 2-3 days after you stop taking the medication.


Who Can Use Period Delay Medicine?


This service is suitable for most women who:


– Do not have a history of blood clots

– Are not currently pregnant

– Do not have liver disease

– Are not breastfeeding


Consult with one of our pharmacists to ensure that period delay medicine is safe and appropriate for you.
