Hello,
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Regesterone ( norethisterone ) acts at the nucleus by binding to progeterone receptor to produce progestogenic effects.
With this you can easily understood that regesterone will not interfere with the result of F S H as this is released by pituitary gland.
So be sure.
Good luck.
