my doctor has prescibed primolut n to delay my period as i am going on holiday. I understand that my period will begin 2-3 days after stopping this medication.
My question, however, is: when will my next period be due? will it be due 28 days from its original date or from the new date? thank you
Primolut is not used in the US and I have no experience with it. I would expect that your period would occur after you stop the Primolut. I can't predict when your when your next period will come. It should be 28 days from your original date, but I don't know the effect your Primolut will have on your ovarian hormone production.
