Norethisterone: I presume you are taking the norethisterone as a progestin only birth control pill. The usual side effects are edema, weakness, anorexia, and irregular uterine bleeding. Other less common side effects are blood clots or thrombosis, depression, headache, breast tenderness, nausea, etc. The dosage of progestin only pills are generally smaller than the regular pills.
