If we provide your period delay tablets at Manchester pharmacy, you would take one tablet three times a day. You would take them three days before your period is due and continue taking them up to 14 days afterwards. If you begin taking the tablets less than three days before your period is due, it might not work and you’ll still have bleeding or spotting. The tablets contain a synthetic version of the hormone progesterone. Periods are triggered every month by a drop in progesterone levels. By keeping your hormone level high, you can delay your period for up to 17 days.

Side effects are unusual but the most common ones are spotting, irregular bleeding, sore breasts and an upset stomach. The longer you take the tablets for, the more likely you’ll experience the side effect’s.

These tablet’s can increase the risk of developing blood clot’s. It’s important to move around as much as possible even if you’re flying or on a long journey. If you have a history of blood clot’s this medicine is not suitable for you. It’s important that you tell us which other medicines your taking, whether they are prescribed or not we need to know so that we only prescribe period delay tablets at our Manchester pharmacy.

What age does your period start?

Girl’s usually start their period’s between 10 and 16 years of age. Most girl’s get their first period when they’re around 12 however, everyone develops at different rates, so there’s no right or wrong age to start having periods.

Your periods will start when your body is ready. This is usually about 2 years after the first signs of puberty appear. In girls, the first signs of puberty tend to be breasts beginning to develop and pubic hair starting to grow.

Having your period whilst preparing for an exam or travelling can be inconvenient – delaying your period can be helpful when these important events occur. We provide period delay tablets for those looking to stop their period affecting an important event.
