These are the common and frequently asked questions by females. Do you find yourself sometimes in between the above lines?
Whether you are planning to go for Holidays or travel for a week or to go any Pilgrimage or join any worship at your home. You can’t enjoy anything as much because your periods are bothering you.
The same similar questions come from school girls having an exam or the girls participated in games. Also, for travel, it’s just a nightmare to have to find bathrooms if you are on a long bus journey.
Fortunately, there is a solution that is a drug with a name of Norethisterone.
It is a synthetic hormone, designed to stop/delay your period before it starts by mimicking progesterone. It artificially keeping your hormone levels steady, your body would not shed its endometrium lining and your period won’t start.
MEDICINE TO DELAY PERIODS:
Take Norethisterone 5mg tablet three times a day, usually at the same time, starting three days before the expected beginning of the period.
Your period should start 2-3 days after you have stopped taking the tablet. In some cases, it can go beyond for a week. If your periods did not start after two weeks of stopping the medicine, you should consult a doctor.
HOW TO DELAY PERIODS- TO HAVE SEX:
If you are not taking any contraceptive pill and you want to know how to stop your period to have sex, you can go through with Norethisterone, which can delay your periods. Norethisterone 5mg tablet is not a new drug.
The information is readily available on the internet and proliferates with mouth to mouth conversation by many a woman.
“The tablet has worked each time, I have taken it”. That being said by Divya- a 36yrs housewife. She has shared after effects after using period delay tablet.
‘I always found that it took a month or two for my periods to get back normal’, she explained.
PILLS TO STOP PERIOD- AN ANOTHER METHOD:
Although Birth control pill is another method to stop or delaying periods. It’s a 21 days contraceptive pill with 7 days placebo therapy.
But it would need to be started weeks in advance of your proposed period date. Moreover, there is no method to stop/delay periods once it started.
HOW LONG MEDICINE CAN BE CONTINUE:
You can continue the treatment up to two weeks. It’s perfectly safe to delay your periods for this amount of time. It’s important that Norethisterone is not a contraceptive drug & can only be taken by women who are not taking a contraceptive pill.
It means that you should use another contraceptive methods e.g.-condoms, etc. to minimize the risk of pregnancy. Also, It should be avoided while you are planning for pregnancy or during breastfeeding days.
WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF FORGET A DOSE?
Sometimes it’s difficult to remember to take medicine especially while you are busy on holiday or function. If you forgot to take a tablet, take it as soon as you remember.
If you only remember about the forgotten dose as it approaches the time to take the next dose, simply skip the missed dose, and take the next tablet as normal.
It is important not to take two doses to make up for a missed dose, as it could make the adverse effect of being double doses.
[NOTE: Norethisterone has some side effects similar to the other allopathic medicines, so read carefully the side effects on leaflet comes with the strip. Also, this is not an emergency medicine. Hence need not to store in your First Aid Kit.]
