Period Delay in Manor Park - Duncans Pharmacy

Period Delay Tablets

Going on holiday, attending a music festival, have important exams?  Will it coincide with that time of the month? 

For some women, the arrival of a period can be very inconvenient, especially if bleeds tend to be heavy and painful, as they can be for many women.

For others, it can be that a religious event such as undertaking the pilgrimage of Hajj or Umrah would mean that the period cannot be allowed to occur.

Whatever your reasons, we can help by supplying enough norethisterone tablets to delay your period by up to 16 days.
