How do norethindrone and etonogestrel compare in terms of side effects, health risks, and patient satisfaction?
How do norethindrone, etonogestrel, and levonorgestrel compare in terms of health/safety risks, side effects, and androgenic activity?
Some answers: Androgenic activity wise from high to low: levonorgestrel, norethindrone, etonogestrel. Overall the health/safety risks are very similar. There is some small suggestion that 3rd generation progestins, like etonogestrel, have increased risk of thromboembolic disease like DVTs. Otherwise the androgenic effects are related to oily skin, acne, weight gain, glucose metabolism issues. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The risks are fairly low in the hands of an experienced physician, and the benefits can be great. Talk to your doc about details. ...Read more
Disagree with Rx: First, not clear to me if you possess a VNS device, but removal can increase sz frequency. Furthermore, you are taking too many seizure meds, as after the first two, the benefit of the third is NO MORE than 3-4% improvement at best and the 4th is clearly egregious. You are best served by either surgery or the VNS unit, and you need to see an epilepsy specialist to get some direction here. ...Read more
Disagree with Rx: Why hasn't the stimulator been replaced, as the newer versions have better batteries and are far smaller? Usually cough occurs when VNS settings too aggressively set, not when removed. Removal may result in increased seizures, and maybe your cough is part of a partial seizure. Have you discussed this with your neurologist?? ...Read more
Yes: Any surgery has side effects. Dental implant surgery is no different. Side effects can include pain, swelling, bruising, redness, bleeding, and infection.
