How does Norethisterone manage to delay menstrual bleeding?

In the female body, progesterone plays a very important role, as it is responsible for the formation of a healthy endometrium, which becomes a kind of breeding ground for the development of the embryo. The body produces progesterone at certain points of the menstrual cycle, and if the formation of a zygote does not take place, its levels rapidly drop, which causes the endometrium to flake. Norethisterone taken to delay menstrual bleeding supplies the body with progesterone, thanks to which hormone levels do not decrease, and there is no bleeding. Therefore Norethisterone can be used as a treatment capable of postponing the period in the event of particularly important occasions such as sporting tournaments or an important journey.

It is also believed that high doses of Norethisterone can be effectively used in the treatment of breast cancer, although the mechanisms of its action in this case have not been established. It most probably blocks the release of hormones from the pituitary gland, which has an inhibitory effect on tumour growth.

When can Norethisterone be used?

Norethisterone is widely used in the treatment of numerous ailments associated with hormonal imbalance. In addition to delaying the onset of the period, Norethisterone is used to treat afflictions such as:

  • endometriosis
  • menstrual disorders
  • painful menstruation, heavy menstrual bleeding
  • irregular periods, continuous, heavy menstrual bleeding or premenstrual syndrome.
  • breast cancer

Who can use Norethisterone period-delaying tablets?

Since Norethisterone is a treatment containing synthetic progesterone, it is only recommended to adult women, although doctors may sometimes suggest its use to younger women. Moreover, patients who take any preparations containing progesterone should indicate this in the health form completed during the ordering process. If you are taking Norethisterone as part of therapy used to treat other ailments, and you would like to use it to delay the period, you should consult your doctor who will recommend an appropriate dosage.

How should Norethisterone be used and dosed?
