Used for a variety of reasons including period delay, heavy, irregular or painful periods,
or endometriosis and in some cases breast cancer, Utovlan is the branded version of norethisterone which is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring hormone progesterone.
Nearly 800,000 prescriptions are handed out for medications containing norethisterone, such as Utovlan, annually making it known as a popular ‘lifestyle’ therapy. So whether you want to delay your period for a holiday, your wedding night or before an operation, Utovlan is an ideal option.
Utovlan can be purchased online once approved by one of our doctors. You will be prompted to fill in a medical questionnaire, after which our experts will asses and approve you for it if possible. If it is felt that this medication is not appropriate or safe for any reason, you will be advised of an alternative and you can book a free, confidential appointment online with our doctors to discuss this further if you wish. Once you have been given a prescription for a treatment, you do not need to fill in the questionnaire again for this medication but it is recommended that you review your prescriptions regularly to ensure you have the correct dose for your requirements.
Once you have your prescription you can purchase your medication after which it will be sent to you quickly and discreetly by next day delivery where possible.
Taking Utovlan keeps the lining of the womb in place to help delay your period but as with any medication it will work more effectively for some women than others but generally, it is considered by doctors to be a very effective method for delaying menstruation.
You will then continue without your period until you stop taking your Utovlan prescription after which your period should begin again.
For period delay for your wedding, holiday, festival or in preparation for an operation, you can use Utlovlan for around 14 days allowing users to have a worry-free break from their menstruation.
Utovlan is considered to be perfectly safe for most women to take occasionally for this purpose including women with a low risk of venous thromboembolism
The active ingredient is in Utovlan is norethisterone.
The inactive ingredients are lactose monohydrate, maize starch, polyvidone and magnesium stearate.
You will be advised how best to use Utovlan by your doctor but generally speaking, for period delay the users would begin taking the tablets three days before their period is due and then one 5mg tablet 3 times daily for up to 14 days, or as long as they are prescribed. Once you stop taking the medication your period will begin again.
If you forget to take your tablet then you can take it when you remember as long as you are not too close to your next dose. Do not take two doses at once or too close together.
Each month, as long as a woman is not pregnant, the level of a hormone known as progesterone lowers which triggers a reaction causing the womb to shed. This is experienced as the monthly period. If this hormone does not decrease, such as in the case of pregnancy or when a synthetic form of progesterone is administered into the body via a medication including Utovlan, the body does not trigger a period. Therefore when a woman uses Utovlan she can safely delay the menstruation period for up to 14 days.
It is not recommended to be taken for more than 14 days unless otherwise stated by your doctor. Period delay medications such as Utovlan can cause uncomfortable side effects such as cramps as the body comes out of its natural cycle. After you have used this treatment it may take a month or two to get back into a normal menstrual cycle so it is wise to use it for as minimal a time as possible.
Hormonal medications can affect a developing baby so it is unlikely you would be prescribed this treatment during this time. If you think you may be pregnant you will likely be asked to perform a pregnancy test before being prescribed Utovlan.
Discuss using this treatment if you are breastfeeding. You may be recommended to use an alternative medication or method of feeding your baby whistle you use Utovlan.
Different medications can cause a variety of side effects depending on the patient using them. Whilst some people may experience very little, others may have severe allergic reactions or side effects.
The most common side effects from Utovlan are a change in your cycle, breakthrough bleeding, headaches and nausea.
Other possible issues linked to this medication are migraines, breast soreness, reactions of the skin such as acne, tiredness, dizziness, depression and increased blood pressure.
If you experience severe stabbing pains or swelling in one leg, pain when coughing and breathing, coughing up blood, chest pain, numbness or visual changes, then contact your doctor right away.
There are certain medications which, when taken alongside Utovlan, can lower its effectiveness. Such medicines, which include herbal supplements and vitamins, include griseofulvin, certain antibiotics and St John’s Wort. Ensure you let your doctor know about any other medication you are presently using before beginning a prescription of Utovlan.
It is important to bear in mind that these types of medication cannot be used to stop pregnancy. As such, if you are planning on using Utovlan, you must also use some form of contraception as well.
