Buy Norethisterone UK | What is Norethisterone?

Buy Norethisterone UK - Norethisterone tablets belong to a group of medicines called synthetic progestogens and is used to delay menstrual periods. Before a womans period is due there is a fall in the level of progestogen hormone in the body. When it falls below a certain level, the lining of the uterus is broken down and the period starts. Taking Norethisterone delays this by artificially maintaining progesterone levels in a womans body until she stops taking the medication. 

Norethisterone is a synthetic progesterone used to delay a period. It is useful for when you may want to delay your period to a later date to stop it from occurring at an inconvenient time, for example on your wedding day or on a holiday.

How does Norethisterone work?

A period is triggered by a drop in progesterone levels during a woman’s menstrual cycle. Norethisterone works by artificially maintaining a woman’s progesterone levels which prevents triggering a period.

When do I need to take Norethisterone?

Norethisterone treatment should be started three days before you expect your period to begin. It must be taken three times a day for as long as you want to delay your period. You can delay your period for a maximum of 27 days. To restart your menstrual cycle you should stop taking the treatment day or two before you want to have your period.

Norethisterone should not be used more regularly than every four months.
