Thank you for waiting.
I understand your problem.
You can take Norethisterone tablet.
It needs to be started at least 3 days before your expected period.
It can be continued for up to 3-4 weeks if necessary.
Period would start after 2-3 days of stopping the tablet.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Can I get a prescription from you
Doctor: Dr Su S, Doctor(MD) replied 2 months ago

I am sorry.
On line prescription is not valid & will not be served by pharmacy.
It is not ethical too to prescribe without examining in person.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
