Answered by Dr. Manisha Jain 51 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Tablets advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello mam, thanks for trusting health care magic.
I usually give tablet norethisterone 5 mg twice a day starting 2 days prior to expected date like in your case on 21st October.
It needs to be taken daily till you want to delay your periods and can be taken for 10-12 days but make sure you don't miss any pill otherwise there will be breakthrough bleeding.

These are however prescription only drugs which you can obtain with a prescription from your doctor / gynecologist.

All the best.

I am a 51 year old woman who has been test for menopause and found not yet in that state. I have frequent, heavy period and spotting to the tune of bleeding up to 14- 20 days a month. I am currently taking iron as prescribed because my hemoglobin was so low. My Obgyn has prescribed Lo Loestrin FE to help regulate my period but I have never been on the pill in my life. I ve already lost my right tube and had my left one tied. My pap was normal. I ve never had children. I am very sensitive to hormones and STILL have a very high libo. The side effects seem just as bad as my condition with breakthrough bleeding. At my age will this RX help me?

I was on the lower dose of the Combipatch for about 2 months and was switched to the higher dose (.05/.25) because of breakthrough bleeding. I m now finding that I have more bouts of mood swings -- get my feelings hurt quite frequently and feel not needed. Can this higher dose be associated with that? Also I noticed that the break through bleeding was common with the patch for awhile -- so not sure why my Dr. changed me so quickly. She also has not personally checked my hormone levels.

Hello, I ve been on Levlen ED for a couple of years now. Recently I forgot to take my pills with me and missed two. Because of this, I had a couple of days of withdrawal bleeding and then skipped my next period (which I sometimes do). I have now had brown spotting for about a week and am not due to begin taking the placebo pills for 9 more days. I ll definitely allow my period to come then and not skip it, but I m wondering how long this brown discharge may go on for and could it have been caused by skipping two pills recently?
