Hi. It is not advised to take medications on your own without a doctor?s advice and prescription. A delay in periods is not an indication to take norcolut. Delay by a few weeks can be caused by stress weight change, anemia, systemic illness and should not be a reason to worry. However if it is prolonged by more than 2-3 months one may have to consider other secondary causes such as hormonal/ endocrine disturbances etc. If your periods are already delayed by a week Norcolut cannot prevent pregnancy since a pregnancy would have already taken place but ?may? cause a miscarriage, also it should be kept in mind that it is harmful to the foetus. If pregnancy is a possibility you may take a pregnancy test about three weeks after an alleged intercourse or a week after missing your due periods. If the test turns out positive and you do not want a pregnancy at this stage you may consult your gynaecologist for medical termination of pregnancy at the earliest convenience. Otherwise a delay by a few weeks should not be anything to worry about. If the delay gets more than 2-3 months you may see a gynaecologist to rule out serious secondary causes. Hope this helps. Take care.

Hi dr. My gynecologist prescribed norcolut to me because i was having two - three bouts of spotting per month along with a period. However I do not fully understand its usage, and reading various websites give me contrasting information. Is this drug a birth control pill or is it just to regulate my cycle. I do not believe in using birth control as a mrried woman and if it is I will be very upset

Hello Doc, Hello, i just found out that am pregnant and my doctor gave me Norcolut to take? He said he wanted to make sure that its not my Hormones giving wrong signal, so he gave me Norcolut to bring down my period after missing it. However i just found out tht its a form of contraceptive. 5 days after i saw drops of blood. Is that even safe??????? I DONT WANT TO HURT MY BABY.
