Hey all, sorry not been about very much, started new job last week and have been coming in and crashing out most nights and doing nothing! Feeling a bit better this week i guess its just coz i havent worked full time in so long and have Alex to look after now too as well!
Anyway! back to my off topic question!
i go on holiday in 2 weeks and unfortunately i wll have my totm. It wouldnt usually bother me however since i started CD my periods have been a lot lot heavier and have lasted a lot longer.
I seem to remember about 5 years ago a girl i know going on holiday at the same time as her period but she went to the doctor and was able to take a tablet to suspend her period? Am i right? does this excist or hav i dreamt it?? Any answers much appreciated!!

It's called Norethisterone. My doctor gave it to me when I had reallybad heavy bleeding last year. It acts like a contraceptive in a way. But taken under normal circumstances, it does do the job and delays any menstruation


Finally a size 12!
Not sure tbh as thats a contreceptive aint it?? Might not let you have 2 buttttttttttt id check anyway x

I was given Norethisterone by my GP last year as I was going on holiday and suffer from endometriosis whcih makes TOTM a nightmare any way I stopped taking whilst away I didn't sleep a wink for days. When I looked a t the side effects it causes insomnia.

Hi it's Norihistorone (?) My doctor gives it to me no problem. Take 3 a day and your period will stop and stay away. As soon as you stop taking it you period will return in a day or so. It's a godsend!

You need to get to your GP asap as you need to start taking it in good time before you are due on I believe.
Also, depends what type of coil you have. I got the mirena, and am too sensitive to extra hormones to have any sort of medication (other than the progesterone the mirena gives me). But, i suppose im lucky as on the mirena i dont get periods - woohoo!
