Norethisterone for period delay

How might you benefit?


Norethisterone is used by many women to control their period. On average, a woman will have around 450 periods in a lifetime, which adds up to 3,500 days. This is of course an average, as everyone is different but this is still a considerable amount of time spent menstruating. 

Having a monthly period is a normal part of many women's lives but there are times when your period is due at an inconvenient time and its arrival would diminish important events and enjoyable activities.

What is Norethisterone? 

Norethisterone is a progesterone hormone that temporarily stops your period, delaying menstruation until the following month. It works by mirroring the way progesterone naturally works within your body during the menstrual cycle; keeping your womb lining intact ready to receive an egg rather than allowing it to shed and leave your body as menstrual blood. 

Let’s take a closer look at the reasons why women use Norethisterone. 


Women with Endometriosis may use Norethisterone as a treatment to relieve the pain and discomfort of this chronic condition. Endometriosis causes the tissue which makes up the womb lining to grow elsewhere in the body. This causes intense pain during menstruation as the tissue has nowhere to go. Stopping menstruation prevents this from happening. 

Period problems

For women with heavy, painful or irregular periods, Norethisterone provides relief from this. All of these issues tend to be accompanied by other symptoms like PMS, bloating, discomfort in the lower back or thighs, tiredness, spots and disrupted sleep. Experiencing this on a regular basis can be wearisome and Norethisterone might be given in an attempt to ease these symptoms.

Travel and holidays

Another major reason for wanting to delay your period is to stop it from happening during a long journey. For example, if you’re going to be on a long distance flight or car ride it might be uncomfortable and difficult to get access to bathroom facilities to change tampons or pads and freshen up. 

The same goes for visits to rural areas where you might be camping or to holiday resorts where you plan to spend your time in the pool. Attending a festival is another event where most women will want to avoid having their period at all costs given the lack of cleanliness, privacy and facilities. 

Romantic getaways and weddings

Your wedding day is supposed to be the most special day of your life, and having your period in the middle of it will certainly put a damper on things. The same goes for couples going on a vacation together or having a date night away from their children. Norethisterone also proves a useful tactic for women in long distance relationships who want to ensure they can make the most of their time with their partner. 

Athletic and sporting events

Women who are athletes, fitness professionals or performers might find that their performance is diminished on the days they are menstruating. For example, experiencing bloating, mood changes and decreased energy. For the days they need to be on top form, Norethisterone provides that assurance. 

These are just some of the main reasons why people use Norethisterone and the benefits it can bring in certain situations. There’s no right or wrong reason to use it.
