Operation for ovarian cyst done.Had been taking decapeptyl depot 3.75 injection for 4 months. Last one taken was on 01Apr. No periods in last 14 weeks?

Unusual choice: Primolut is a synthetic progestin, norethisterone: it would be an odd choice of treatment, at least in the us. Although it's actions are very similar to native progesterone, most advise avoiding synthetic progestins when pregnant. Discuss your concern again with your doctor, for sure. ...Read more
Norethisterone: It's not actually the presence of Primolut (norethisterone) that brings the period, but actually the removal of the medication. Your body gets used to having it for a few days and when it's gone, it signals the body to shed the uterine lining. Norethisterone is the same signal that your ovaries secrete when an egg is released and if no pregnancy occurs, that signal stops, also leading to a period. ...Read more
