    Hi
    Im really confused if anyone can help it would be much appreciated as my gp isnt givng very vague advice
    I start my period on the 11th of july so have started taking norethisterone from the 8th of July (as i am going on holiday on the 15th)
    I am fasting for ramadan so i take one tablet at 3am, one at 9:45 pm and one at around 11:45 pm
    However on holiday i will also be fasting and the times inwhich i can take the tablets that ive worked out are around 3am inthe morning for the 1st, 2nd at 7pm and third at 11:45pm
    There is a time difference of 2hours from the uk
    I am wondering whether the change in my time intervals would cause my period to start again? If ajyonehas been thru a similar situation?? the heat apparently causes the period to worsen?! Its going to be 40+ degrees there so if anyone knowss if any interval change affects the cycle pleasee pleasee let m know

    Thank you!

    I think you will be fine, I took them a while back and my dr said its not really necessary to take all 3 each day, but to be sure you should. I only took two a day and had no problem. I dont think you have to be that specific with the time as long as you space out the three over the day
    I guess I would say you should probably take one mid day rather than having all three so close, but I guess its up to you weather you think that taking it is breaking your fast.
