Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your question.

What pill did you take to delay your period?

There are two ways a woman can delay the start of her period.

If you take a combined contraceptive pill, you can delay your period by taking two packets back to back. How you do this will depend on which pill you take. Taking your contraceptive pills in these ways will not affect how they work as contraceptives.

If you are not taking the combined contraceptive pill, your physician may be able to prescribe medication called norethisterone to delay your period. Your gynecologist will advise you when to take norethisterone and for how long.

Usually, you will be prescribed three norethisterone tablets a day, starting three days before you expect your period to begin. Your period should arrive two to three days after you stop taking the medication.
However, it’s important to be aware that norethisterone does not act as a contraceptive when used in this way.

Anonymous, this is general information. I suggest you consult the physician who prescribed the pill.
