Delaying period for smear test

Long story short, I went for a smear last week but the nurse couldn't do it so we made another appointment to try again which in two weeks. Afterwards I realised that I am actually due on period. Great.

I don't want to rearrange because I really do want to get this out of the way so got some norethisterone from online pharmacy.

Now I am worrying that taking it will effect the results some how. Anyone know if it can do that? Google isn't much help tbh.

Has anyone taken norethisterone to delay period for smear before? Obviously will ask nurse beforehand anyway but I am hoping it will be fine.

I’ve used it for my wedding as I was due on and it gave me sore swollen boobs but I can’t imagine it having an effect on smear results xx

I don t think it will affect the smear results a lot of women have synthetic hormones in them and it isn't mentioned in your smear letter that results will be affected.
