Delay Your Period

For women who are not on the pill, it is possible to delay a period with a three times a day pill called Norethisterone. Many women are keen to delay a period to avoid having it at an inconvenient time such as a holiday or other special event. For women who are already taking a contraceptive pill, they can start their next pack without a break and this will avoid them having their period. It is not recommended that this is done for more than three consecutive cycles.
