So I was looking for ways to delay my period for a week, and after searching online, the solution I found was to take norethindrone/norethisterone 3x a day 3 days before when my period is due (which is basically around today). I called my doctor and she said you can only control your period with birth control. I asked her about norethindrone and she said yes, it's birth control and prescribed it to me.
When I got the pill, I realize it was a combined pill (with .5 mg norethindrone and 0.035 mg ethinyl estradiol) and not the progestin-only pill I was reading about online. My question is, should I even bother trying this (and if so, I should only take it once per day, right?) If I start birth control right before my period is suppose to start, will that delay my period?
