Hi
Usually northethistrone should be given for 3 weeks and the dose is tapered with each week.Take it 3 times a day for a week,tice a day for next week,and once a day for the third week.However,you should confirm with your doctor who has prescribed this since his treatment methods may vary.

I was switched to Norethindrone in August. My last period was the beginning of September and my doctor said it s normal to not get a period on this drug. I stopped taking it Thursday and had sex Saturday. According to an app on my phone, Saturday was my first day of ovulation. Is it possible to conceive after only being off the pills few days or does it take time to get out of your system?

Hello, I have been taking Norethindrone Micronor 0.35mg for about a year and a half now. I was given this after my d&c surgery at age 58 to help with the change and to stop any heavy bleeding. It has worked well, a little bleeding about 3 or 4 times a year, and now I am wondering if I should continue and if so for how long? Until my body goes through the change?
Thank you, Gudrun

I recently had an FSH test and the level was quite high at 40. I am only 37 so i am wondering if it is possible that the following: NORETHINDRONE ACETATE 5MG TABLET could have caused the abnormally high reading?? I just finished taking it a few days before the test.

Hi Doc,

I wanted to postpone my period due to my wedding...my date last month was on 2nd and i generally get periods 1/2 days before..so the gyane had put me on Primolut Nor 10mg...and she prescribed 2tab for 3 days and then 1 tab for 7 days...and she said after you stop taking it you will have your period within a week....and she also suggested that 3 days after my period starts i shouldtake a contraceptive Pill ( Yasmine) for 21 days...but how ever i was not sure if i should be on medcines for so long so she said taking this contraceptive pill is your call...

However can you tell me if i should take this contraceptive pill?..also its been a day since it started taking Primolut Nor 10mg...everything seems fine but i have read online that there could be slight bleeding initially....is that true and is the bleeding after i stop taking this medicine irregulat & heavy with prolonged days?? im worried cz i have always had regular periods with heavy bleeding on 2 days out of 5 days.

Please help
