I have PCOS- irregular but heavy periods. Last was 3months back. Now I have cramps, no bleeding yet. Will Primolut N delay this period for my wedding?

Primolut-N can delay: your period for a certain time, but eventually the uterine lining will start to break down & you'll get your period.

Unclear: I would defer this to the prescribing physician as this is a medicine that is dosed for controlling either the cycle or the symptoms associated with the cycle. Usually the Dr. has put you on a specific schedule and you should check with him/her about using it to defer a cycle. ...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.

Hi, my period is due to start on the 22nd. Would I start taking my primolut nor 5mg tablets today in order to delay my period?

Hi, my period is due to start on the 22nd. Would I start taking my primolut nor 5mg tablets today in order to delay my period?

Primolut nor: appears to be a synthetic progesterone not widely used in the US but available in Europe. It is used for treatment of irregular menstrual bleeding/dysfunctional uterine bleeding. It can be used to delay menses, but directions suggest it be taken 3 days prior to expected menses and taken for 10-14 days. I don't know what day you wrote this but if later than the 19th, it probably won't work. ...Read more
