Utovlan tablets are a medication used to delay menstruation. They are also prescribed to treat a range of menstrual conditions, such as heavy periods, painful periods, irregular periods, PMT and endometriosis and are sometimes given to breast cancer patients. The active ingredient in Utovlan is the progestogen norethisterone. When taken as prescribed, it stops your period until you stop taking it. Please note, that DrEd only prescribes Utovlan for the purpose of period delay. If you need to be treated for a menstrual disorder, please visit your local GP.
Utovlan is not a contraceptive pill and it does not prevent pregnancies. You need to make sure you are using appropriate protection, for example a condom, if you have sex while taking the tablets.
To delay your period with Utovlan, you need to take three tablets per day. The tablets need to be taken at regular intervals, one in the morning, one at midday and one in the evening. You will start your course three days before your period is due to start. If you have forgotten one dose, take it as soon as you remember and then continue your treatment at the correct time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed tablet.
Your period will return about three days after you have finished your course. If you do not experience a period and have had sexual intercourse during your treatment, visit your doctor. Your doctor will check whether you are pregnant.
Utovlan tablets contain a hormone and it is a prescription-only medication. A doctor needs to review whether Utovlan is suitable for you. While most women can take the tablets, in some cases it may be necessary to abstain from using period delay tablets.
Each Utovlan tablet contains 5 mg of norethisterone. In order to stop you period, you need to take three tablets every day, which amounts to a daily dose of 15mg norethisterone. When using Utovlan tablets to treat other conditions, such as heavy periods, your GP may recommend a different dosage or duration of your course.
How long you need to take Utovlan for depends on how long you would like to delay your period for. The tablets are not suitable for delaying your menstruation on a permanent basis. They are available in packs of 30, 60, or 90 tablets suitable for a treatment duration of 10, 20 or 30 days.
The active ingredient in Utovlan is the progestogen norethisterone. Progesterone is a naturally occurring female sex hormone. Norethisterone is a synthetic version of this hormone. The tablets also contain maize starch, lactose monohydrate, polyvidone and magnesium stearate.
