I was taking northistorone tablets for a week and have now bieng of them for 4 days and my period has still not come ... Can alcohol delay a period?

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.

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

Hi i will go for a vacation and i will take Primolut N to delay my period ( two pills a day )  can i drink alcohol while i there ?

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
