It’s absolutely normal to face times when being on your period is inconvenient. Holidays would be a good example.

At these times, there are medications that can be used to delay it.

Simply fill in the following brief questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your answers and prescribe if you are medically suitable.

How does the Period Delay treatment work

Period delay pills contain a hormone called Progesterone. There are 2 different types and the appropriate one is chosen is based on your medical history. While Norethisterone is most commonly used, it is not suitable for some people. In this case an alternative progesterone pill, called Medroxyprogesterone, may be suitable.
