Diagnosed with carotid artery dissection. Is it safe to take utovlan to delay periods?

Hi. I have just been diagnosed with a carotid artery dissection two months after it first started. I thought I had had a chronic migraine . Anyway I am going abroad at the end of November and I want to delay my period so is it safe to take utovlan even though I have a carotid artery dissection which is now healing itself. I have taken utovlan before.

Hello ma'am and welcome.

I would advise you to only take the medication after consultation with your doctor, keeping him/her informed, so you can remain under his/her supervision. As you must already know the side effects the srug can have that can complicate your condition.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
