Effective to take several Loestrin (1.5mg ethinyl estradiol, 30mcg Norethindrone acetate) instead of Plan B emergency contraceptive? How many pills?

Effective to take several Loestrin (1.5mg ethinyl estradiol, 30mcg Norethindrone acetate) instead of Plan B emergency contraceptive? How many pills?

EC: Although there are at least a dozen types of birth control pills that can be dosed as an emergency contraceptive, I can find no source that includes Loestrin among them. Perhaps someone else has a regimen, but I recommend getting Plan B or the like to ensure you get the maximum benefit. ...Read more

Which of this two pills can produce more weight gain: norethindrone 1mg and etinilestradiol 0, 035mg or nomegestrol 2, 5 mg and estradiol 1, 5 mg. ?

Which of this two pills can produce more weight gain: norethindrone 1mg and etinilestradiol 0, 035mg or nomegestrol 2, 5 mg and estradiol 1, 5 mg. ?

Neither: Birth control pills do not cause weight gain. That is myth. In fact studies show that more women lose weight on birth control pills. Weight gain is related to diet and exercise not birth control pills. Depoprovera can lead to weight gain by stimulating the appetite causing one to eat more. ...Read more

Combipatch (estradiol and norethindrone) hormon replacment -- any suggestion or experience any side effects?

Combipatch (estradiol and norethindrone) hormon replacment -- any suggestion or experience any side effects?

Tough in <400 char: Topical cream & transdermal patches for hormone (replacement) therapy appear to be safer than oral. However, it appears that some of the issues over the last decade re HRT may be due to progestin used, eg medroprogesterone acetate (mpa) or provera. Combipatch uses different one, Norethindrone acetate. I prefer vivelle dot (estradiol) & oral Prometrium (micronized progesterone) (bio-identical progesterone) as possibly safer. ...Read more

Which is better for HRT prempro or combipatch (estradiol and norethindrone)?

Combipatch (estradiol and norethindrone): The whi study, which complicated hrt thinking, used prempro (conjugated estrogens and medroxyprogesterone) as its estrogen/progesterone drug to study. This particular hrt was linked to issues such as breast cancer and heart disease (although the study turned out to be very unreliable!). New, dependable studies have shown that transdermal (patch, cream, gel) hrt has a decreased risk of breast cancer and heart disease compared to oral. ...Read more
