How to Delay Your Period in a Safe, Effective Way?

Periods are a normal part of life for most women, but they often come with unwanted side effects like cramps, mood swings, and bloating. They can also seriously put a hamper on special events or disrupt your love life. That is why so many women choose to occasionally delay their periods with period delay treatment.

What is Period Delay Treatment?

Period delay treatment is a medical way to temporarily prevent your period from beginning. Your period comes each month when you don’t become pregnant during your menstrual cycle. Each month, your body prepares for pregnancy by releasing female hormones that cause your uterine lining to thicken. If you don’t become pregnant, those hormone levels drop causing your uterine lining to shed as menstrual blood.

Period delay pills prevent your hormone levels from dropping by releasing synthetic versions of the hormones. This temporarily stops your uterine lining from shedding so you don’t get your period.

Is It Safe to Delay Periods?

Delaying your period with period delay tablets is completely safe and won’t cause any long term complications or impact your fertility. Like with any medications, you may experience some side effects with period delay tablets, but they are usually mild. Potential side effects include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Headache
  • Nausea
  • Breast tenderness
  • Loss of libido
  • Changes in mood

It is important to note that period delay tablets are not the same as birth control. If you don’t want to become pregnant whilst taking period delay treatment, you should use contraceptives to prevent pregnancy. Other Hormonal Methods to Delay Periods

If you take birth control pills or other hormonal contraceptives, you may be able to use them to safely delay your period. For example, in a typical pack of birth control pills there are 3 weeks worth of hormonal pills and one week of placebo pills. If you replace the placebo pills with hormonal pills, this will delay your period through a method called ‘continual use’ of birth control. Before attempting this, contact your GP to discuss your options.
