Dear Doctor,

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From your question, I understand that you want to delay your next menstrual cycle by a week. I need to know answers to a few questions before telling you the name of the drug.

  • What is your age?
  • Are you married?
  • When did you get your last period?
  • Once in how many days do you get your periods? (you can give a rough idea or a range of number of days)
  • How much do you bleed, is it moderate or do you have a heavy flow?
  • Do you get any symptoms during periods, like abdomen pain or breast pain?

Your answers for the above questions will help me treat you better.

Doctor,

My age is 23 years. I am unmarried. My last period was on 16.02.2013. The cycle is of 35-40 days and the flow is moderate. Yes, I do feel pain in abdomen and breasts.

Thank you for reverting back.

Take tablet Sysron-N 5mg 3 times a day. It contains Norethisterone.

Start the tablet around 6 - 7 days before the expected date of your next period (around 28th day for you).

And take it everyday till you desire. I mean, say you want to attend an event because of which you want to postpone your period, continue taking the tablets till the event is over. And then stop taking the pill. You will get your cycle within 1 to 5 days of stopping of the pill.

  • There can be minor side effects from the pill, like mild breast pain and increased flow when you get periods. Some people also have slightly irregular cycles for 2-3 months thereafter.

I have told you about everything you need to know; so that you can decide accordingly.
