Probably: But the Aygestin (norethindrone) may make you moody and/or bloated. If you have a few months, you may consider starting regular birth control pills.

Good chance so..: It is a med belong to the progestin class and one of the intended/side effect of use is amenorrhea--lack of period/mentrual flow. Some women may have some breakthrough bleeding while on this med..Often light flow and 'unpredictable" ask your questions/express your concern when you are prescribed medication. Good luck.

Maybe: Some women don't bleed on it while some do and others have constant bleeding -- it varies. The dose matters, too.
