  • Pill to stop period?

    Hi all

    I'm sure I read on here somewhere that there is a pill to stop you having your period that you can get from the Doctor's?

    Am I imagining this?!

     

    Thanks

    Jo

  • Re: Pill to stop period?

    yes, I think it is called utovlan - but it might only be legal in the US at the moment

    other option is tranexamic acid pills (prescribed by GP) to lighten the flow, when I took them they made mine stop completely,

     

    Either way defo go and see your GP as he/she will give best advice

    Edit - Sorry  just read my post and I wansnt clear - Utovlan doesnt stop them it delays them each day that you take a pill

     

    stupid darn ticker never works!  Now it is just plain lying!!

    Jo you aren't imagining it.  Ask your doctor for norethisterone.

    I took this the month before my wedding to knock my period out by long enough so that I wouldn't be due for the wedding or honeymoon Smile

    Turns out I knocked my cyle out enough that I was ovulating on honeymoon and I'm now expecting a honeymoon baby! Embarrassed

    Hi, yes there is tablets that you take, I took them last year when I went on holiday.  I took mine the day before I was due on, and took 2 tablets each day for around 3 days and never got the period, but next month they returned as normal.  I'd definitely use them again.  Ask your doc for 2 weeks supply of these if you are going away.

    Congratulations!

    The problem is that I have the impant, so I don't actually know when my period is due, I just know I've not had one in ages so it's probably due around the wedding ish!!

    Thanks :)

    I have no experience with the implant, but it's probably worth having a chat with your doctor to see if it would be any use to you!

  • Re: Pill to stop period?

    I'll make an appointment tomorrow if they have one. Do you thin it's too late (a week to the wedding)?

  • Re: Pill to stop period?

    Well I know when I took it I had to start taking it 3 days before my period was due - so if you knew when yours when yours was due you'd probably still have time.  It may well be different in your circumstances though!

    Hiya,

    I am on cazzerete (sorry on the spelling), this is the mini pill where you do not have a period full stop.  I started on the injection, which did not suit me but these actually do.  I was at family last night and I spoke to them about a number things including when to come of the pill to start a family trying to let them give me the combination pill again.  No joy, she said there is no difference except you have a false bleed on the combination, and the mini is better for me.  I no doctor, so best to speak to them good luck x

  • Re: Pill to stop period?

    Thanks all. I don't want to start taking the actual pill like microgynon etc because I already have an implant but will see what the Doctor says.

    Hi joflake,

    I had the injection and it didn't suit me I was bleeding all the time (I mostly still am- 2 weeks out of 4- even though I've changed back to a pill) and the doc gave me mefenamic acid tablets which you take 3 times a day and it lightens the bleed (it stops mine after a day or so) for 5 days (but i think you need to be bleeding).

    Norethesterone (or however you spell it) is another hormone based pill so not sure they'll give it you on the implant.

    I've had to take my pill through (and am now having a 3 week bleed) to make sure I don't bleed for the wedding or honeymoon- fingers crossed!

     

    Hope the doc sorts you out x

    Married Mr C 25.10.08 so now just plain old kc Smile
