Utovlan is a prescription medicine that women use to delay the onset of their periods. This is the branded form of the generic period delay tablet, Norethisterone. The active ingredient in Utovlan is the hormone ‘norethisterone’, a synthetic variant of the naturally occurring sex hormone ‘progesterone’.

Utovlan period delay tablets require a prescription, which may be obtained when you purchase Utovlan online from The Independent Pharmacy and use our online doctor consultation service. It isn’t accessible over the counter. Our easy health questionnaire takes only a few minutes to complete, and we can deliver as soon as the next working day using monitored delivery and plain packaging.

Utovlan period delay tablets are taken three days prior to the start of your menstrual cycle, until the course is completed. A woman’s period will usually resume three days after completing the course.

You can use Utoovlan to delay your period for up to 17 this will effectively completely delay your period and all its symptoms such as bleeding.

Utovlan cannot be used to stop your period once it has already started.

While Utovlan pills are commonly used to delay your next period, they may also be used to treat, manage or relieve:

  • Heavy, painful or irregular periods
  • Premenstrual tension (PMT)
  • Endometriosis
  • Breast cancer

How does Utovlan work?

When Utovlan is taken to delay a period, the norethisterone keeps progesterone levels high, which prevents your period from starting as it usually would.

Please note: Utoovlan is not a contraceptive pill, so patients are advised to use other forms of protection if they wish to avoid getting pregnant.


Why delay your period?

Periods are healthy and a normal part of being a woman. However, there may be occasions where the timing isn’t ideal, and you’d rather it didn’t arrive when it was due.

Most women have at some point in their lives considered delaying their period for convenience. There are no precise conditions that restrict you from requesting your doctor for period-delaying medicine such as Utoovlan.

If you’re contemplating about delaying your period, consider why and for how long. Utovlan is intended for one-time, infrequent use to postpone your period, not to avoid them entirely. If you’re delaying your period because it’s too painful to deal with, it’s time to see your doctor.

We don’t recommend ‘alternative’ means of delaying your period – such as drinking gelatin or vinegar – since there’s no evidence that either option works.
