hi priyanka,
am dr.surendran
nice to meet you here in HCMagic
i completely understand your problem
if you wish you can stop your period temporarily, Norethisterone ,a type of progesterone only pill. The dose is 5 mg three times a day starting 3-4 days before a period is due.
It can be continued for up to two weeks or so until you want to have a period. Your period will then normally begin 2-3 days after stopping it. Norethisterone is normally safe to take.
Some women have side-effects such as bloating,
stomach upset,
breast discomfort
and reduced libido (sex drive).
hope helped your query
regards dr.surendiran hcmagic
