If you’re not taking the combined contraceptive pill you may be able to take a medicine called norethisterone. Norethisterone is not a contraceptive and you can still get pregnant. Therefore you will need to use a different type of contraceptive like a condom.
The tablet is usually taken three times a day 3 to 4 days before your period is due. Once stopped you can expect a period within 2 to 3 days.
Norethisterone is a prescription-only medicine but at City Pharmacy you may be able to purchase norethisterone. The pharmacist will need to ask you some questions to ensure the medication is safe for you to take. For your convenience, you can go through the questionnaire process online.
