Some women choose to delay their period due to special occasions such as a wedding or holidays. Periods can be seen as an inconvenience and so women will either take two packs back to back of their combined oral contraceptive, or use period delaying tablets such as norethisterone, or Utovlan, the brand name of norethisterone.
Period delay tablets can stop periods for up to 17 days. They are not a contraceptive and should be used alongside your usual contraceptive methods. It is not suitable to use period delay pills more than once in four months.
Should you have an occasion coming up soon, and are considering delaying your period, please contact a dedicated member of our team here at Pharmacy Online to ensure your occasion is stress (and period!) free.
