Utovlan Tablets

Utovlan Tablets are from a group of medicines called ‘Progestogens’. Progestogens are similar to the natural hormone the female body produces called progesterone. The progesterone contained within Utovlan Tablets is called Norethisterone.

Otherwise known as a progestogen-only pill, Utovlan Tablets don’t contain oestrogen. This can help women who may have contraindications when taking a combined pill containing oestrogen, past or current illnesses such as VTE, arterial diseases, past or current breast cancer.

Utovlan Tablets can be taken to treat or manage:

  • Heavy periods
  • Painful periods
  • Irregular periods or periods that are more frequent than normal
  • Premenstrual tension
  • Endometriosis
  • Breast cancer

Please note that Utovlan Tablets are not a contraceptive pill. Patients are advised to use other forms of protection if they wish to avoid getting pregnant.

My Pharmacy has numerous other forms of contraception available for purchase.

What Are Utovlan Tablets Used For?

One of the more common questions regarding this product is “What are Utovlan Tablets use for?”

Utovlan, otherwise known as Norethisterone, is a prescription medication used to delay your period for up to 17 days. This is accomplished by artificially increasing the body’s progestogen levels. Increased progestogen levels stop the lining of the womb from shedding, causing a delay in your period.

If this is the first time you’ll be using Utovlan Tablets and are worried about how long your period will be delayed, please speak to a doctor.

Period Delay

Period

A period is the part of the menstrual cycle when a woman bleeds from her vagina for a few days.

For most women this happens every 28 days or so, but it’s common for periods to start sooner or later than this, ranging from day 21 to day 40.

Your period can last between 3 and 8 days, but it will usually last for about 5 days. The bleeding tends to be heaviest in the first 2 days.

When your period is at its heaviest, the blood will be red. On lighter days, it may be pink, brown or black.

You’ll lose about 30 to 72 millilitres (5 to 12 teaspoons) of blood during your period, although some women bleed more heavily than this.

Period Delay

There’s no guaranteed way to delay your period, but it may be possible if you take the combined contraceptive pill.

If you take a combined contraceptive pill, you can delay your period by taking 2 packets back-to-back. How you do this will depend on which pill you take.

If you’re not sure which pill you’re on or which pills in the packet to miss out, speak to your pharmacist, community contraception clinic or GP.

Avoid taking more than 2 packs without a break, unless your GP says you can – there’s a risk you could experience side effects.

If you don’t take a contraceptive pill
See your GP for advice if you want to delay your period and you’re not taking the combined contraceptive pill.

They might be able to prescribe medication called norethisterone to delay your period. Your GP will advise you when to take norethisterone and for how long.

You’ll usually be prescribed 3 norethisterone tablets a day, starting 3 to 4 days before you expect your period to begin. Your period should arrive 2 to 3 days after you stop taking the medication.

However, it’s important to be aware that norethisterone doesn’t act as a contraceptive when used in this way, and it may not be suitable if you have a history of blood clots.

How well it works in delaying periods also varies between women. Some women taking norethisterone have reported side effects, such as:

bloating
breast tenderness
nausea
headache
disturbances in mood and sex drive
