What is Norethisterone and how does it work?

Norethisterone 5mg tablets work by acting on receptors in the body to mimic or exaggerate the effects of the natural hormone, progesterone. These high strength Norethisterone tablets can be taken to temporarily stop the shedding of the womb lining, which helps to stop/delay your period. Once you stop taking Norethisterone, your progesterone levels return to normal and your next period usually starts again within 2-3 days.

PLease note: this medicine is not a contraceptive.


How to take Norethisterone?

You should always take this medicine as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. Period delay tablets should be taken with water. The normal dosage for these tablets is:

Delay your period - 1 tablet three times a day starting at least three days before your period is due. Your period should occur 2-3 days after you have stopped taking the medicine.

This medicine is intended for short term occasional use to delay a period during times of inconvenience, therefore the maximum number of tablets we will prescribe is 60 tablets which would be sufficient to delay your period for up to 17 days. By occasional use we recommended that Norethisterone is not taken any more frequently than 2-3 times per year with regular normal periods between use.
