Thanks for choosing is synthetic progesterone,mimics action of endogenous progesterone-protects uterine lining and on withdrawal causes bleeidng mimicking a period.Norethisterone is normally safe to take. Some women have side-effects such as bloating, stomach upset, breast discomfort and reduced libido (sex drive).
