Period Delay Treatment

Who is the period delay treatment suitable for?

Our period delay treatment is suitable for adult females aged between 16 and 50 years who are not already taking the contraceptive pill.

The short consultation with the pharmacist will ensure that the medication is suitable and safe for you to use.

How does the period delay tablet work?

Period delay tablets work by mimicking natural progesterone levels to keep them raised. This stops the womb lining from shedding and delays your period.

If you want to delay your period, you should start taking the medication 3 days before your period is due. You need to take the tablet 3 times a day and it can be taken for up to 17 days. Your period will start 2 or 3 days after you stop taking the tablets.

What medication is supplied to delay your period?

After a consultation with the pharmacist, you will be supplied with either Norethisterone 5mg tablets or Medroxyprogesterone acetate 10mg tablets.

How much does the service cost?

Our period delay service costs just £15 with the cost of the prescribed medication calculated at the end of the consultation according to the type of tablet & quantity required.
