the medicine and dose your doctor adviced is correct.
In order for women to feel comfortable, regestrone(norethethistirone) has been introduced which can help in delaying the period for a particular period of time. You can take the pills in a way that you can delay your periods for the time when you are going to attend a special event or are going for a holiday. regestrone 5mg is the name of the treatment that is used to delay periods. This pill consists of Norethisterone as its active ingredient, which is synthetic progestogen. This progestogen is similar in effect to the natural female sex hormones in your body.
