Estradiol Norethindrone Acetate Dosage
Hormonal Medication: Oral contraceptives are used to prevent pregnancies but are also used for pain related to endometriosis, abnormal menstrual periods and other conditions. Adding Ibuprofen to the regimen can decreased pain during menstruation if that's the case, however you must be aware of side effects of all nsaids (ibuprofen) like stomach ulcers when used on a regular basis.

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

What is the breakthrough ovulation rate when taking nortrel (norethindrone/ethynl estradiol 1/35) consistently and with perfect use?
Very minimal: If you are very consistent taking the bcp the pg rate is only 1 to 2% at the very most. Of course if you are taking other meds or antibiotics the pill absorption is affected and increases the failure rate. ...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.?
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?
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
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yes and no: The last week of the pack of pills contains iron pills. They are there to help prevent iron deficiency anemia and to keep you on a regular schedule. You do not have to take them but you must then remember to skip a whole week before you start a new pack. Estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) is not a pill that you can do continuously to avoid a period, unlike some pills where that is ok. ...Read more
Probably OK: Generic versions of medications are usually fine, but they are not identical. The fda allows for a modest degree of difference in "bioequivalence". Essentially, a generic medication is allowed to be sold if it is between 80% - 125% of the brand name medication. Most generic medications are fine for most people, but there is always some percentage of patients for whom they are different. ...Read more

On trivora 28 (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) for a month and some days forgot = unprotected sex.?
Yes: Oral contraceptives only work if you take them. You need to take them at about the same time every day (morning or evening) so that they trick your brain into thinking you already are pregnant, and do not ovulate. If you miss a pill, take it as soon as you realize, but if you miss more than two you should use some other form of birth control, such as condoms. ...Read more
