Wait a few more days: I presume you mean norethisterone/norethindrone. Once you finish the seven to ten days of this med you should wait up to a week for the period to come. If it does not you need to see your gyn for continued evaluation and possible bloodwork. There is no evidence that short-term alcohol use would affect this. ...Read more

What happens if i put rubbing alcohol up my vagina? Will it delay my period?

Your vagina has nothing to do with your menstrual cycle other than as a conduit to semen to impregnate the egg. ...Read more

Yes, assuming . . .: If you can drink alcohol where you are now while on Primolut N (http://www.drugs.com/uk/primolut-n-spc-15917.html), there's no reason why you can't drink alcohol while on vacation somewhere else. Just be sure to use condoms to minimize risk for sexually transmitted diseases/infections. ...Read more
