Yes, Primolut N pill can affect next period and a couple of cycles as it may cause hormonal imbalance. It helps in delaying period when it is taken by inhibiting ovulation.

Generally, it may take about 2-3 cycles for the hormonal imbalance to settle down and the cycles to regularize. May I ask if you had unprotected intercourse after your last period?

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Hi I’m going away on holiday next week and I’m going to take primolut N to delay my period for about 10days while on holiday. The doctor said I will get my period about 2/3days after I stop taking it. But I’ve been reading that some people have had delays on there period the next month, is this a side effect? Will this pill effect my future periods or will everything just go back to normal and Will it effect my fertility?

Im 38y with regular periods, which was due on the 11.June.17. I went on primolut for 2 days- 5&6th of May to delay my periods due a function I d to attend. I d unprotected sex on the 8&9th June....because I was sure I was in the post ovulation, infertile phase, especially after having taken primolut. But having not had my periods till date is worrying me because I don t want to abort, nor add another child at this age. By how many days does a 2 pill dose of primolut postpone periods?
