Delay your period

Delay your period

Our period delay service is suitable for adult females aged between 16 and 50 years who are not already taking the contraceptive pill.

The short consultation with the pharmacist will ensure that the medication is suitable and safe for patients to use.

Period delay tablets are taken as one tablet three times a day. For the tablets to work you need to start taking them three days before your period is due to start. They'll delay your period for three days after you take the last tablet.

It is possible to delay your periods using the contraceptive pill or period delay tablets. 

How does the period delay tablet work?

Period delay tablets work by mimicking natural progesterone levels to keep them raised. This stops the womb lining from shedding and delays your period.

If you want to delay your period, you should start taking the medication 3 days before your period is due. You need to take the tablet 3 times a day for up to 17 days. Your period will start 2 or 3 days after you stop taking the tablet.
