Hi, I’m going on holiday and would like to delay my period. I have taken norethisterone once before to delay my period. I would like to ask what is the difference between the available trade name on the website - sunolut, noriday and norcolut. Can you also please advise how many days before should I start taking the pill? Thanks

Hello and good morning.
Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your problem. I will try to help you.

You have confusions about brand options for medication to delay your period for vacation. Despite some brief explanation given here, you are still strongly encouraged to discuss this with your doctor for the best decision making and to minimize side effects on your body.

All three trade names as stated have same content: Norethisterone but not all three are indicated for postponement of menstruation, they also differ in prescription dosage.

You can also contact our doctor online for further information and management.

I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
