Norethindrone !: Norethindrone acetate. This medication is a hormone called progestin. It is used to regulate the menstrual cycle and treat unusual absence of menstrual periods (amenorrhea) and endometriosis. Progestins help other hormones start and stop the menstrual cycle. Your doctor may have suggested this medication for conditions other than that which i mentioned.
