Which is the best ocp for a nulliparous? And is it safe to take norethisterone for continuous 12days for the postponement of menses?

Which is the best ocp for a nulliparous? And is it safe to take norethisterone for continuous 12days for the postponement of menses?

And yes, definitely safe to take continuous to postpone menses! ...Read more
