Hi,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
Your doctor rightly prescribed the tablet which helps to control bleeding and regulate your menstrual period.

Primolut N 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 disorders.

Some of the side effects are Nausea.Headache/migraine.Changes in menstrual bleeding, eg irregular bleeding or sometimes stopping of bleeding.Change in sex drive.Bloating,Weight gain, Liver function derangements, hair loss.

They are mild and do not occur in every patient taking this drug so do not worry at all.
Consult your Gynecologist before taking depot shot. Certainly your period will become normal.
Hope this helps you.
Good Luck.
Dr.Akhilesh Dubey M.D
