Hello dear
Understand your concern
Yes familon tablet used for postpone period.
1. You can start this tablet 3 days before normal period date. (start from 14th may to 25th may). when you stops the drug bleeding will come in 3-4 days. So period will come after 25th may
2.Postpone the period is very successful and better than prepond.
It cause minor side effects like nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramp, irregular spotting, breast tenderness.
Hope this may help you
Best regards
