how to take Utovlan-Norethisterone 5mg tablets ?

Hello, could you please advise how to take Utovlan-Norethisterone 5mg tablets. I have been prescribed to take 1 tablet 3 times a day from day five to day 26 of next six cycles. I have got them because of spotting 1.5 - 2 weeks before period. Although the treatment is for 6 months I have been prescribed only 90 tablets, so it won t cover even 2 months. Is it then right to take them 3times a day ? What about 26 day of the cycle - include that day so I will take tablets for 22days or don t include the 26th day to take them for 21days. Thank you very much for your help.

I am taking Utovlan to help me re-lactate! Will it work as all the information does say it does cause lactation to occur? Is this true and if so how long does it take to work?

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
You can take the tablets for 21 days with water half an hour before meals at the same time everyday. Do not forget any tablet once you start it on day 5 as that will cause irregular bleeding. After taking it for one cycle you can switch over to oral pills as they will also have the same effect.
