Customer Question

I live in the US - can I get Norethisterone to delay my period? I have vacation coming up June 10th, so about 3 weeks away. I am not on the pill as I had the Esure procedure to prevent me from getting pregnant. I have read that this drug is only available in the UK.

This is Dr. David

norethindrone acetate is available as a pill 5mg pill in the USA.

you have to see a doctor to get a prescription for it here

or you can use regular birth control pills and continue to take the pack without the placebo week pills.

Norethisterone injections are not available in the USA.

but medroxyprogesterone injections are available

let me know if you have questions.
