How can Anytime Pharmacy help me?

We provide this regulated, specialist service for women who wish to obtain medicine to postpone their period if it falls at an inconvenient time. This could include during exams, a special holiday or a major life event.

All services provided by Anytime Pharmacy are safe, fast and confidential (we do not inform your GP). You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of lengthy doctor waiting rooms.

Choose same day click and collect from your local participating pharmacy. The benefit of collecting from your local pharmacy is that you can go to the pharmacy at a time that suits you, it's faster than a mail order delivery and no-one has to wait at home to sign for your medicine.

How does the Anytime Pharmacy service work?

Step 1:             Register online and complete the free online medical questionnaire consultation. A doctor will review your questionnaire and, if it is safe to do so, approve you for treatment. You do not pay for your doctor consultation.
Step 2: If you are approved for treatment you will be sent a text message asking you to log back into your secure patient record. You can pay for your period management service using a debit or credit card.
Step 3: You will be sent a FREE SMS (text message) when a doctor has sent your prescription to your nominated pharmacy. We advise you to call your nominated pharmacy to check your prescription is ready, then collect your medicine.

Why are no prices shown for Anytime Pharmacy treatment services?

Under current UK advertising law we cannot show you prescription-only-medicine (POM) prices prior to a medical consultation with a registered doctor. Once your doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your registration and medical consultation is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment.

All of our prices are fully inclusive, and so for prescription medicines the prices include the cost of the consultation, the issuing of a private prescription, and dispensing of the medicine itself. There are no hidden extras.

How does this period management treatment work?

Your doctor can prescribe you primolut N (norethisterone) which works in a similar way to the hormone progesterone. It works by delaying your period until the tablets are stopped.

How to take your period management treatment

You will need to take one primolut N tablet three times a day, starting three days before your period is due to commence. Your period will be delayed whilst you are taking the tablets and should start 2 -3 days after you stop taking them.

What are the potential side-effects (contraindications) of primolut N?

All medication and antibiotics can cause side effects. Your period management treatment can cause nausea, worsening of epilepsy, worsening of migraines and skin problems. However, not everyone will experience them and the side effects are usually mild. The leaflet accompanying the treatment will list some of the rarer side-effects.

When answering your medical questionnaire for period management treatment it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before they prescribe you treatment.

How effective is this period management treatment?

Primolut N is usually very effective if you follow your Doctor's prescribing instructions.

Who should not use this particular period management service?

You should not request this treatment service if you are taking the oral contraceptive pill, have diabetes or have a known intolerance to sugars, or have an operation planned.

This service is not suitable for women if you are pregnant, breast feeding or if you suffer from liver or kidney disease.

Looking after your period management treatment
