Hello Good Evening,

First of all, you should have confirmed that you are not pregnant, for that you should go a repeat pregnancy test followed by a ultrasonography, may be needed trans vaginal.

Primolut Nor. tablets contain the active ingredient norethisterone, which is a synthetic hormone similar to the naturally occurring sex hormone,progesterone. It is used in a wide range of menstrual disorder and it is not to be used in known or suspected pregnancy.

So first of all reconfirm about your pregnancy, and have declared as menstrual disorder, then only go for Primolut Nor.
