Side effects of period pills

It is rare to experience side effects whilst taking pills to stop your period. At most, women may notice light spotting towards the end of the course. However, it is important to be aware of any potential side effects so that you can speak with your doctor regarding a change in prescription.

Reported side effects include:

  • Dizziness or tiredness
  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Tender breasts
  • A change to your libido
  • Diarrhoea or constipation

Period delay pills may not be safe for you to take if you have allergies, or if you are taking another medication. You must share your medical history on the online assessment. Our doctors need to understand this medical history to make sure it is safe for you to use the medicine.

Using the combined pill to delay periods

Period delaying pills such as Norethisterone are not the only way you can delay your period. It may also be possible to delay your period by taking two back-to-back packets of the combined pill.

Although this method isn’t always effective, it may be possible to delay your period for up to 21 days. You can order the combined pill online with Medicine Direct.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do tablets stop periods?
Period pills contain the hormone progestogen which controls the lining of your uterus. Period’s begin when your progestogen levels have dropped, as this causes the lining of your uterus to shed. By taking period pills, you can maintain higher levels of Progestogen to delay the beginning of your bleed. As they control the cycle of the uterus shedding, they can also help to regulate the monthly menstrual cycle. If you would like to buy period delay medication online, fill out a Medicine Direct health questionnaire here. This will be passed to one of our doctors, who will assess your symptoms and prescribe the right course of treatment for you.
