Norethisterone is the active ingredient in Utovlan and is a period delay medication that contains progestogen-type hormones.

Norethisterone gives you the additional hormones that affect your normal cycle, preventing the shedding of the womb and so preventing menstruation.
Utovlan is an effective treatment that almost always prevents menstruation. The majority of women will have no bleeding, although some may have some light bleeding. The treatment is very popular and has been licensed for use in the UK for many years.
One tablet should be taken three times a day, beginning three days prior to your expected period. Your period will usually follow within three days of stopping the treatment.

Utovlan tablets can be used to delay a period for a maximum of 17 days and used no more than once every 6 months.
Utovlan is not always suitable for every woman and can interact with some medicines. We will review your medical information submission and ensure that it is a suitable treatment for you.

As with all medicines, Utovlan can potentially cause side effects, although many women report having no side effects at all. Potential side effects include nausea, fatigue, reduced sex drive, breast tenderness and headaches.
