Hopefully you had: An endometrial biopsy so u know if the thickening is normal or not, before you started the medicine, I do not know your specific situatiuon but that is what I would do to my patients, I do hysteroscopies, biopsies and d&cs in my offcie, hopefully yuor doc does those in her office, a real shame and much more expensive and more hassel for you and her if u have to do it in the hospital or surg center. ...Read more

My period came 15 dys early 2 my predicted date may23 but I had unprotected sex on apr 29 but on the pill norethindrone 0.35mg my last period apr15?

My period came 15 dys early 2 my predicted date may23 but I had unprotected sex on apr 29 but on the pill norethindrone 0.35mg my last period apr15?

Uncertain: I'm not sure what you mean by unprotected sex if you are on the pill. Mini pills containing only a progestin like norethindrone protect against pregnancy but do not do a good job of regulating periods so bleeding can be irregular just because of that. Of course STDs can also cause irregular bleeding and the only way to know for sure is to be tested. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Are there any progesterone based pills I can take to prevent forming more endometrial polyps? Currently on 5mg norethindrone but reviews are horrible

Don't stop: Don't stop pill to lose weight. You can lose weight now just as easily. Count calories. Slim-Fast recommends 1400 calories for a person 5'4 with exercise. That's about right, but without exercise 1200 calories works too. (adjust a little up and down based on your height (up or down), at 100 cals per inch (up or down). If you learn to watch calories, then you will always be in control of weight. ...Read more
