About "postponement of periods"
Periods may be required to be postponed in certain situations such as beach holiday, wedding, pilgrimage, sports tournaments or travel. Commonly, it is done by the use of a prescription-only pill called Norethisterone given in a specific dose.
Norethisterone is a progestin medication that is to be taken three days before the menstruation is due. It can be continued until the event is over, for a maximum of 14 to 20 days since its commencement. Periods will return once the medication is stopped.
It is not safe for some women to postpone their period by this method, especially if they are taking other drugs, contraceptive pills
or have a family history of blood clots. It is therefore imperative to consult a specialist to assess your suitability.
