Information & Advice
Prescriptions Direct makes it easier to manage your periods
Boots Prescriptions Direct allows eligible customers to access Primolut N (norethisterone) through an online consultation.
Primolut N has similar actions to the hormone progesterone. It works by delaying your period until the tablets are stopped.
You will need to take one Primolut N tablet three times a day, starting three days before your period is due to commence and continuing for no more than 14 days afterwards (17 days in total). Your period will be delayed while you are taking the tablets and should start two to three days after you stop taking them.
Primolut N can cause side effects, although not everyone will experience them. The side effects are rare and include nausea, worsening of epilepsy, worsening of migraines and skin problems.
|Treatment length||Cost of Primolut N|
|10 days||£14.90||20 days||£22.40|
Primolut N is currently the only treatment for period management available through Prescriptions Direct. For information about other options for managing your period, as well as advice if you are currently taking the contraceptive pill, we recommend that you speak to your GP.
