Dreaming of that perfect beach vacation but worried about your period crashing the party? Don’t let Mother Nature dictate your fun! You have options, and taking control of your cycle is easier than ever.

For many women, the idea of a period-free getaway is a game-changer. No more packing extra tampons or scrambling for discreet disposal options. Just sunshine, relaxation, and uninterrupted enjoyment.

Here at Glow, we empower women to understand and manage their cycles. That includes exploring ways to delay your period when you need to.

Skipping with the Pill: A Convenient Option

If you’re already on birth control pills, delaying your period might be a simple matter of skipping the inactive pills (also known as placebo pills) at the end of your pack. These are the pills that typically cause your withdrawal bleeding, mimicking a period.

By starting a new pack of active pills right away, you essentially extend your hormonal cycle and postpone your period. This method is effective and convenient, but there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Talk to your doctor first. Make sure skipping your period is safe for you, especially if you have any underlying health conditions.
  • Breakthrough bleeding is possible. Some women experience spotting or light bleeding while continuously taking active pills.
  • Your period will return eventually. Once you stop taking active pills continuously, your period will resume as normal.

Progesterone: A Non-Pill Option for Period Delay

Not on birth control pills but still want period control? There’s an option for you too! Progesterone, a hormone naturally produced by your body, can help delay your period.

Nurx offers prescription progesterone specifically for this purpose. Here’s how it works:

  • Consult with a healthcare professional online. Through Nurx‘s convenient platform, you can connect with a licensed healthcare provider who can assess your situation and determine if progesterone is right for you.
  • Discreet delivery, straight to your door. No more waiting in line at the pharmacy. Once approved, Nurx delivers your prescription right to your doorstep.
  • Peace of mind and expert guidance. Nurx provides ongoing support throughout your treatment. You can easily reach out to healthcare professionals for any questions or concerns.

By taking progesterone strategically, you can thin the lining of your uterus, essentially preventing your period from occurring. This method is safe and effective for many women, and Nurx makes the process simple and stress-free.

Take Charge of Your Cycle and Your Glow

A period shouldn’t hold you back from enjoying life’s moments. Whether you’re on birth control or not, there are ways to manage your cycle and experience the freedom of a period-free adventure.

Glow is here to provide information and support, and Nurx offers a convenient and secure solution for those seeking to delay their period with progesterone. Together, we can help you take control of your cycle and embrace your Glow!
