Choose Between Birth Control Injections And Birth Control Pills To Delay Menstruation?
Good afternoon doctor, I have a question. I’ve had my last few months every month on the 1st. I also do family planning injections every month, coincidentally, my injection schedule is on 29-04-18. while on 01-05-18 I was traveling out of town. I’m worried about my period. the question is: can i take primolut n and on what date? while I also have to give birth control on 29-04-18 because I want to delay my period during my traveling trip. thanks
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Delaying menstruation for certain reasons, including for example when traveling or worshiping, is possible, among others, by giving special drugs. One of the drugs that is often used is norethisterone (eg primolut). This drug is a derivative of the hormone progesterone that works to delay menstruation by inhibiting ovulation (the rupture of a mature egg from the ovary). In this way, the consumption of norethisterone can also indirectly delay the arrival of menstruation.
In order to achieve its effect in delaying menstruation, norethisterone is generally recommended to be taken 3 to 7 days before the intended departure day.
However, considering that you are currently using hormonal contraception (i.e., 1-month injectable contraception), you should first consult an obstetrician to avoid potential side effects that may occur. A doctor's examination is also needed to determine if you are the right candidate. to take norethisterone or not. Because, in some conditions, there are also women who are not advised to take norethisterone, including breast cancer, diabetes, hypercholesterolemia, obesity, migraine, hypertension, heart attack, pulmonary embolism, chronic heart failure, stroke, blood clotting disorders, and so on.
I hope this helps.
