Patient Advice On Medication For ‘Period Delay’

The term ‘period’ refers to a specific part of the menstrual cycle, where bleeding occurs. There can be situations where someone may wish to delay their period, for example for a holiday or special event. A delay to the commencement of someone’s period may be achieved using medication. Two common examples of medications that are used for period delay are norethisterone tablets and medroxyprogesterone tablets.
