Brief Answer:
Yes, you can take regestrone to postpone period.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Yes, you can take Regestrone (Norethisterone pill) to postpone your period until you complete the course of Clingen.

Regestrone should be taken twice daily, 3 days prior to period due date. You can continue this as long as you want to postpone (3 days in this case).

You will get withdrawal bleeding like period within 3-5 days after stopping them.

Additionally, you should follow these preventive measures to avoid repeated vaginal infection:

1) Use vaginal moisturizer cream like RepHresh pH gel or VAGISIL cream to avoid repeated infection and maintain vaginal pH. Maintain genital hygiene properly.

2) Wear only cotton clothes. Don't wear any tight fitting clothes to avoid repeated friction/ irritation. Take sound sleep adequately.

3) Take healthy diet with anti oxidant (like Vitamin -E or C, Selenium, Zinc etc) supplements. Drink plenty of water or juice for better systemic circulation. You must LIMIT Salty/ Sugary/ Fatty foods.

4) Avoid chemical cosmetics, perfume or scented bath products around genital area. Keep the area mostly dry. You also avoid unprotected sexual intercourse with chemical lubricant until problem is resolved.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and take care yourself.

Dr S Patra

You should take Regestrone pill in different time (not together). Give at lest 3-4 hrs gap in between them. It helps better absorption of above medicine.
