Can Primolut-N be taken to delay menstruation?

default
Posted on Thu, 14 May 2015
Question: My LMP was on 14.04.2015. My cycle is normally 25-30 days. I am thus due for my next period between 08-05-2015 and 12-05-2015 roughly. There are unavoidable religious commitments planned for those days and i would like to hence delay my periods by a few days.
I was suggested Primolut N for this purpose. Would that be a good option? What is the dosage i should take, from when and for what duration?

P.S: I am on Thyronorm 75mcg presently.

Thank you Doctor for your prompt response.
I would request you to please clarify some points...

When should i take the tablet specifically during the day - twice meaning morning and night? Tablet to be taken before/after food?
I take Thyronorm on empty stomach in the morning.

If i stop taking the tablet on 12th, when can i expect my periods next?

Are there any do's/dont's to be followed while taking these tablets? Any signs i need to be watchful of?

My apprehensions are so as I have never taken medication for such circumstances before...

Thank you....

Hi

These tablets need to be taken once in morning after breakfast and once at night after dinner.

You will get periods within a week after stopping tablets on 12th.

No additional precautions needed. No dos and donts specifically.
