I have just booked a holiday for the summer. However, I really don't want to be 'on' during the week I am away, firstly because it will mean my not being able to do water based activities, which are the main things I am hoping to do, and secondly, because I always feel (and act!!) so yucky for the first 3 days of my period, which won't be nice for my companion! I was prescribed norehisterone tablets for another holiday a couple of years ago, but ended up not having to use them, which I was quite relieved about at the time! I am a bit nervous about using norehisterone, as I've never taken hormone based medicine before, and am anxious about possible side effects (in particular, bloating / weight gain and nausea, none of which will be easy to deal with in a holiday situation). I am trying to weigh up the pros and cons and whether or not to get a further prescription! Has anyone had experience of taking this medicine, and, if so, how did you find it? Many thanks!
