Simply fill in a brief questionnaire. One of our doctors will review your order and prescribe a suitable treatment. How to Order

Period delay tablets are a safe way to delay your period. This can be beneficial if your period is set to clash with a special event or occasion when being on your period might not be ideal. For example, a big celebration or a long trip.

We currently offer 2 types of period delay tablets, both of which are fully licenced in Ireland:

  • Primolut N, the only type of medication licensed for period delay in Ireland and typically suitable for women with a low risk of blood clots
  • Provera, a licensed medication prescribed 'off label'* and typically suitable for women with a higher risk of blood clots

Once you request period delay medication through us, a qualified doctor will check that this is suitable for you and prescribe treatment. You can then collect your medication from your preferred pharmacy, or you can choose to have your medication delivered directly to your door.

If you have any questions or need advice about period delay medication, you can message our doctors through your secure account.

To get yours, simply complete our brief medical questionnaire, and a ZAVA doctor will then check to see if treatment is right for you. They will then issue your prescription to a local pharmacy in Ireland or choose to have your medication delivered directly to your door.

* Learn more about 'off label' medications in our FAQ below (‘How do period delay tablets work?’).
