Trying to conceive, irregular periods, primolut N- 5 mg, negative effect of primolut on conception

Hi. I am Laila. Female, age: 30. I am trying to conceive for the last 3 months. But my menstruation has been very irregular for the last 3/4 months (very little bleeding , no menstruation in 2 months etc). My doctor gave me Primolut N- 5 mg and told me to have it 3 times a day for 21 days (starting from the 5th day of my last menstruation ). Doctor also told me to continue trying to conceive in the mean time. What if get pregnant during those 21 days. Does primolut have any negative effect while I am trying to conceive a baby?

HELLO madam,
welcome to health care magic,

you are anxious to conceive and the treatment you are presently on is the first line treatment given.

Primolut N tablets contain the active ingredient norethisterone, which is a synthetic hormone similar to the naturally occurring sex hormone, progesterone.

in women, progesterone is responsible for the development of a healthy womb lining (endometrium) that is necessary for pregnancy. This helps maintain a healthy womb lining for the ongoing pregnancy.

so be optimistic and continue with your treatment.
may god bless you.
take care.
