How successful is Norethisterone at stopping bleeding?

How successful is norethisterone at stopping bleeding? I have frequent breakthrough bleeding on contraceptive pills and am unable to run packs together without getting bleeding but have been given norethisterone to take 3 times a day on top of my pill for a sports holiday in the hope it will prevent bleeding.

Hi,

You should find out the cause. Have you done a scan recently? If not it is better to get one at the earliest now you can take 3 daily after 3 days 2 daily for 3 days and 1 daily with other pills.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr B. Radhakrishnan. Nair, OBGYN
