Can you get a pill to stop a period?

the pill?

Mosschops30 - Are you serious? lol.

If you have the contraceptive pill lying around you could take that.

You can get something (noristherone or something?)but I always find it never works completely

I've just never heard of a GP giving a prescription for someone whos period is coming at an inconvenient time for their holiday!

What coil do you have? Mirena?

Mosschops - I've taken Noristherone in the past with no problems. Not sure if you'll have 'time' to delay now though as you have to take it a few days before you're due, maybe 7 (can't be sure though, only threw the box away last week as they were out of date).

keep your hand on yer ha'penny. There loads more time for that m'larkey.

Yes, you can. My GP gave me some since period due for weekend away. However, it did mess with my cycle a bit and I got pregnant (unplanned) shortly afterwards.

i've used it sucessfullt twice availble from the gp

I would say pill too. Start a new pack as soon as you finish the one you are on rather than have the seven day gap.

Well what did you say it for then? I genuinely didn't think a GP would prescribe something to do that. So I was quite amused and surpised!! And I was asking if you had the Mirena Coil in as it has hormones in so it probably wouldn't be a good idea to take anymore. That was all!!!!

hi mosschops

hows it going with your coil? have you had your check up yet? ive got mine soon - what do they do? do you have to have the threads checked or anything?

(sorry to hijack)

QueenFlounce Tue 21-Jun-05 13:20:33

Clearly it was meant to be sarcastic.... so well and good it is not. Can't be arsed arguing about it though..... its a lesson learned though for me.

QueenFlounce Tue 21-Jun-05 13:21:36

Can't think what your problem is! I don't think I've ever even spoken to you let alone offended you so as you hold a grudge. Can't stand these snidey little backhand commments thrown in.

QueenFlounce Tue 21-Jun-05 13:23:12

NP - Is this your 6 wk check? If it is then they do check your threads. It's very quick though. And they ask what your bleeding has been like too. I've had mine 5 months now and am really pleased with it..... apart from the greasy skin!!

thats great news mosschops - im the same, have now decided coils are the best thing in the whole world ever. periods are nice and light (have had 2 since coil went in 6 wks ago) and no pain or anything since initial few days.

hooray! and dont have to take these blasted tiny pills of dread (that i always forgot anyway)

as for the greasy skin, havent had that, maybe its cos i have a copper coil not a hormone one

QueenFlounce Tue 21-Jun-05 13:34:36

If I had put a backhanded comment into a post like that.... then the poster it was directed at clocked it then tried to explain why it was a bit undeserved.... then I'd at least apologise for my comment! Not just glaze over it. I would only make a comment like that if I expected a reaction... so you got it. Brrrrravo.
In your opinion I am over reacting. In my opinion your remark was uncalled for and petulant.

NP - I have heard a few people on MN complain about the greasy aspect of the Mirena. It didn't kick in until I had had it about 3 months! So yeah it must be the hormones. Grrrr.
