Hello,

Let me tell you that norethisterone prevents ovulation. It causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. There is no need to worry. Even your test suggest that you are not pregnant.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Prabhash Verma, General & Family Physician
