I cannot afford £34 for just a phone call after I've paid £5.....how can I cancel the £34 charge

I am really sorry to hear about such a payment issue.

As such, you would not be charged for the phone call, as it was not accepted.

Thank you.

Respected customer

I appreciate all this additional information you have given.

Please give me a few minutes to review this and type up an answer.

Thanks for your cooperation and patience.

Respected Customer,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problem and I know how worrisome this situation can be for you but hopefully, we can resolve this.


I understand, that you have an upcoming period on the 19th/ 20th of May, and want to postpone it due to a religious trip.

Yes, there is a medication that you can take for the purpose of postponing your period.

It is called Norethisterone 5mg and it is taken in the following way. -

One tablet three times a day beginning three days before the expected period is due to begin.

It is then taken every day in the same dosage until such time until it is convenient for the period to begin when you stop taking the tablets.

Once the treatment course is complete you should start your period in two to four days.

Norethisterone is safe for most women to use on an occasional basis but should not be used to delay periods regularly.

This has to be prescribed by your doctor.

Please see your doctor, and get a prescription for Norethisterone.

It can cause side effects like- low mood, acne, breast tenderness, fluid retention, and loss of libido

I am really, sorry that you will not get an online prescription on justanswer.com

Here, No expert on justanswer.com is allowed to give an online prescription.

You have to personally see your doctor and get a prescription.

We can offer here only medical advice for health/ medical questions.

Once again, sorry for that.

I hope you understand this issue.

Hope I have been able to clarify the situation for you and helped in resolving your query.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if you want to discuss this further.

Thank you.
