If you're entitled to free prescriptions then yes.

Just thought I would share my norethisterone experience as I was sceptical beforehand having seen such mixed reviews. I wanted to delay my period for a holiday and was finally swayed to try norethisterone by a friend who had had a positive experience. I didn't experience any cramps/discomfort/mood swings while taking the tablets and actually found remembering to take them three times a day easier than I had anticipated. I started my period three days after stoping and it lasted for a normal length of time. It was probably slightly heavier and more painful to begin with but this could've been coincidence but is probably just a common result of adjusting my cycle-I deemed it to definitely be worth it as I could enjoy my holiday. I know different people have different experiences using norethisterone, having read a lot of negative (and slightly off putting stories) when I was looking in to delaying my period, and wanted to share my more positive one. Hopefully if you're looking to delay your period using norethisterone then it works for you

Whenever I've taken norethisterone, the period that comes after has been an almightily horrible one (severe cramping, very heavy flow) - probably because it's been needing to expel for 2 weeks and unable to! I'm pretty certain occasional courses of norethisterone is what messed up my cycle - I haven't taken it for more than 2 years now but I still have incredibly irregular periods, and can go several months without one now. So don't worry too much, norethisterone is notorious for making it hard to return to a regular cycle. GPs can test your hormone levels if your lack of periods goes on for several months, but even the majority of time it'll just be a case of waiting for them to come back/become more regular.

Came across this feed. Was wondering if anyone knows if you get back on the combined pill after you've finished norethisterone and having your period? I'm only taking norethisterone for 3/4days.

I'm not sure about that (I thought you couldn't take norethisterone if you took hormonal contraception) but if you're on the combined pill you can just run your packets together instead of taking the break to skip your period.

I don't know when my period starts as they are a bit messed up. So can I just take Norethisterone when j think it's about the right time.. Will it still work
I've been on norethisterone for a few months this year and I've always started my withdrawal bleed 3 days after stopping only problem I have is it lasts longer over a week! With me having heavy prolonged periods for past 5 yrs now and pcos it's not a pretty sight theses tablets are my go too but now I think I'm going to leave it as they really screw up ur periods and esp the withdrawal bleed lasting for over a week is over the top
