Norethisterine is containing synthetic progesterone, a female hormone which is indicated to treat your heavy periods.

It works by thickening the fluids in vagina and by changing the lining of your uterus (womb). Thus, it lowers the chances to get pregnant.

However, as your doctors prescribed it to you it was because you need first to get your periods back to regular again. Then, after you have stabilized your periods, you can think about of having a baby.

Keep always in touch with your OG specialist.
