Frequently Asked Questions

What are period delay tablets? How do they work?

Period delay tablets are pills that allow women to postpone their menstrual cycles. They work through releasing a synthetic hormone that mimics progesterone and/or oestrogen. These are the hormones that decline during menstruation, therefore by keeping the levels of these hormones high, the body no longer feels the need to shed the uterus. Once your course of tablets is over, your progesterone levels will resume normal behaviour, and your period will start.

How to delay your period

To delay your period using period stopper tablets, take your pills three days before you expect to start your period, then take one tablets three times a day. Your menstrual cycle will only resume once your course of pills is over.

How long can I delay my period for?

After the initial three days before your period, you can continue to take period delay tablets for up to 17 days. Once you stop your course of pills, your period will start 2-3 after.

How to stop your period naturally

Unfortunately, there are no proven ways to delay your period naturally, and many of the ‘natural period stoppers’ can also cause side effects.
