Brief Answer:
Periods can be postponed

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for your query.

I have read you query and I understand your concerns about irregular periods.

Following is my reply:

1) Periods are known to be irregular in women with PCOD. It is difficult to predict your next periods seeing your previous period dates.

2) For my patients who wish to postpone periods I give tab. Meprate 5mg twice a day. You can use this tablet from March 1 to March 10th.

3) You will get periods after stopping this tablet.

I hope I answered you query and addressed your concerns.

Let me know if you wish to ask any further questions. I will be glad to help you.

Regards,
Dr. Soumya

Doctor should i take tab twice consecutively for 10 days? We are planning to get pregnant. Will it have any side effects becoming pregnant? Can i take norethisterone tab also? If so from when and how long i have to take?
