Are there any other benefits of period delay?

Aside from the clear benefit of having the ability to delay your period for your convenience, period delay medication can also help in other ways. A period delay medication like Norethisterone has the added benefits of decreasing pre-menstrual symptoms, reducing the pain caused by endometriosis, reducing painful periods and decreasing heavy bleeding between or during menstruation. Period delay treatments could also make you more comfortable if you are in the advanced stages of breast cancer.

How does period delay medication work?

Period delay treatments contain the active ingredient norethisterone, which is a man-made form of progestogen. This ingredient works to delay your menstrual cycle by temporarily disrupting the balance between the naturally occurring female hormones oestrogen and progestogen in the body. The added hormone introduced by the norethisterone causes this imbalance and leads to the period delay. The period delay lasts until the additional hormones leave the body, which will occur when you finish taking the tablets.

What are the side effects?

Most women will not experience any side effects from period delay medication, but as with all prescription medication there is a small risk of some kind of adverse reaction.

Mild side effects can include:

  • General
    • Weight gain, dizziness, fever, depression, appetite changes, high blood sugar, fever, drowsiness, sleeplessness, fluid retention or swelling
  • Eye
    • Reduced vision, difficulty wearing contact lenses
  • Skin
    • Acne, discolouration, rashes, itching
  • Internal
    • Libido changes, breast discomfort, ovarian cysts, spotting or breakthrough bleeding
  • Stomach
    • Stomach aches, nausea

More serious side effects are very rare but should be dealt with immediately if they occur. They can include an allergic reaction which is usually characterised by wheezing or swelling of the face. There is a small possibility you could also experience intense migraines, significantly raised blood pressure, jaundice or thrombosis. Contact a qualified healthcare professional as soon as possible if you are concerned about the severity of any adverse side effect to his treatment.
