What is the Lords Pharmacy Period Delay Clinic for?

Having your period can sometimes be inconvenient, for example if you’re on holiday or taking exams, or if it’s a special occasion like your wedding.

This clinic can give you access to prescription-only treatment called Utovlan which will delay your period until you stop taking it.

If you already have a prescription from your GP we can dispense it, either at your local Lords Pharmacy, or via our online prescription service.

Who can use this clinic?

To use this clinic, you must be female, aged 16 to 54 and not using the contraceptive pill, or any other hormonal contraception.?

The average age of menopause is 49 and most women will have stopped menstruating by age 54. If you are 55 or over and want to delay your periods, we recommend you speak to your GP.
