Period Delay

Period delay is a service we offer that, through medication, allows a woman to delay her monthly period. The easiest way to do this is by taking a period delay tablet called Norethisterone.

Why delay your period?

Women delay their period for a number of reasons. You may be attending an upcoming wedding or going on holiday and you think being on your period will interfere with your plans. You may also be entering a potentially stressful situation, such as moving house or starting a new job and want to avoid discomfort or stress that can accompany your period.

There is a level of variation when it comes to the menstrual cycle. Nevertheless, periods occur on average every 28 days. Any regular cycles shorter or longer than the average, i.e. 21 – 40 days, are considered normal. The female hormone oestrogen levels normally begin to go up in the first half of the cycle. The oestrogen thickens the womb lining in preparation for pregnancy.

The midpoint of your menstrual cycle is between 10 to 16 days following your period. Ova is released by the ovaries through the ovulation process. This is when a woman is most fertile.

How does period delay medication work?

At Derbyshire Travel Clinic we are able to provide tablets that delay your periods. They work by mimicking progesterone, your natural hormones. It prevents the lining of the womb from shedding by ensuring that the progesterone levels are kept high. This way, the period is delayed.

For how long is your period delayed?

Our Norethisterone period delay tablet is able to delay  periods for about 17 days. We recommend that you take the tablet about 3 days before you experience your normal period.

What are the side effects of the period delay tablet?

It’s safe to use the period delay tablet, however, you should only use it occasionally. The most known side effects of delaying periods include changes in mood, rashes, nausea, headaches, breast tenderness, and dizziness.
