Came off depo. Trying to concieve. Prescribed Norethisterone. Will it jump start ovaries?

I came off depot after 10 years (because of bad endo) in April 2012 because I want to have a baby and no periods as yet, had laparoscopy and dye test in my tubes - tubes patent, endo all gone but have congested pelvis . been given a 7 day course of Norethisterone which I finished last night - when can I expect a bleed and is this likely to jump start my ovaries back into action?? Next appointment not until end of May 2013 - feeling anxious! Any advice appreciated Emma

Thanks for your query.
After Norethisterone, you should have a period within 2 - 3 days, but maximum within a week.
After depo, you should be having regular periods within some months maximum.
Norethisterone does not jump start your ovaries into action :)
Fertility depends on the tubes of course, which are fine.
However, endometriosis itself affects pelvic blood supply, quality of eggs produced and also your uterine lining.
Plus, you have to consider your partner's semen analysis, and your ovulation.
Please consult a reputed Infertility practitioner, get all investigations done, and consider ART ( assisted reproductive technology ) if you are 35 years or more.
Take care.
