Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I want to ask that is there any method with which we can have periods earlier than due date? Also, if we can use any tablet to delay monthly periods?

Answered by Dr. Eeshani Dutta


Welcome to icliniq.com.

There are medicines to delay periods but to bring it early might be dicey, as spotting may stay, finally botching the occasion. Please start taking tablet Norethisterone 5 mg twice a day two days prior to the expected date of periods and continue till the day you want to. Periods usually commence within 3 to 7 days of stopping the medicine.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
