Remember that this particular OCP works primarily by suppressing ovulation like most OCPs, but, at the local level, thins out the uterine lining. This means it may take a while to get it built up again and get your uterus back on track. ...Read more

Your body recognizes progesterone. It doesn't recognize synthetic progestins like norethindrone or Provera (medroxyprogesterone). Side effects of these medications include all the symptoms that perimenopausal women describe. ...Read more
