Can Norethisterone stop your period?

Yes, Norethisterone can stop your period if taken 3 days before the onset of menstruation. 

What does Norethisterone do to the uterus?

Norethisterone is a progesterone receptor agonist. This means that it binds to the progesterone receptors in the uterus and causes the same effects as progesterone. This results in a thickening of the uterine lining, which makes it less likely for implantation to occur. It can also make the uterine lining less receptive to implantation, and make the uterus hostile to a pregnancy. In some cases, it can also lead to the shedding of the uterine lining, which is known as withdrawal bleeding. 

Is this medication suitable for me?

Please get in touch with a doctor if you are unsure what medication is suitable for you. You can also complete our online consultation form to check your eligibility for the product.

How is the medication delivered?

Items will usually arrive the very next day after the ordear has been placed. We also provide tracking for your orders to check the status and location of your parcel. All our medication is packaged in plain confidential padded white or brown envelopes. This ensures that your orders are discreet, and the content of the orders will be for your eyes only.

How do you take Norethisterone tablets?

Norethisterone tablets are taken orally, with or without food. The usual dose is 5mg taken three times a day for up to 10 days. Treatment should start 3 days before the expected onset of menstruation. 

How long can I take Norethisterone for?

Norethisterone is used to treat a variety of different medical conditions and the length of the treatment can vary significantly. Please follow the directions given to you by your doctor. 

How do I order my medication?

Some products only require an online consultation which approximately takes 1 minute to complete, enabling you to then buy the product.
