Q & A

Menstruation is a natural and regular process faced by every female from an early age. Although you can generally adjust to dealing with this, there can still be moments in which your period begins at an extremely inconvenient time such as night outs, holiday, exams, etc. You may want to temporarily delay your periods. If you already happen to be routinely taking the combined oral contraceptive pills, postponing periods can be easy. Take two packets one after the other which would result in delayed menstruation. You will need to take a week’s break from the contraceptive pills when you have finished taking two packets back to back. However, if you are not on these pills, there are alternate approaches available.

Norethisterone tablets contain progestogen. They increase the effects of the natural female sex hormone, progestogen. Norethisterone tablets are used to stop periods. It is a short-term treatment. Once you finish the course, you will have your usual menstrual bleeding 2-3 days after the last tablet.

Is having period pain normal?

YES. Many females experience levels of discomfort and pain during menstrual periods. For some, it is bearable, but some have severe pain and their day-to-day lives get affected with this.

How long do the pains normally last?

The pain can begin a day or two before your periods start. It can last for 2-4 days.

Will nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines affect my stomach?

NO. But if you are a smoker or you consume caffeine, these drugs do have the potential to cause some irritation in your stomach. To avoid this as much as possible, you should take this medicine with milk and after a meal (with a full stomach).

Are there any risk factors associated with heavy menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia)?

YES. Anemia is one of the risks associated with menorrhagia or heavy menstrual bleeding. The blood loss reduces the number of circulating red blood cells (hemoglobin). Menorrhagia can also cause iron deficiency anemia.
