Can I buy aygestin (norethindrone) without prescription? Is it safe to take without prescription? I seen they sell it online

Can I buy aygestin (norethindrone) without prescription? Is it safe to take without prescription? I seen they sell it online

Not legally: In the us. It's a prescription drug because: 1) most people don't need it regularly, 2) most folk won't know how to dose or use it correctly, 3) there may be reasons why you should not be using it anyway. If you can buy it online that's kinda scary, I wouldn't do it. It's not a tylenol (acetaminophen). ...Read more

Which is the best ocp for a nulliparous? And is it safe to take norethisterone for continuous 12days for the postponement of menses?

Which is the best ocp for a nulliparous? And is it safe to take norethisterone for continuous 12days for the postponement of menses?

Low dose: I recommend low dose (20mcg estrdiol) for women starting out on birth control. You have all the benefits and hopefully minimal side effects. Unfortunately, not every pill works for every woman and it's difficult to say which pill will work for you. I like Mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) or kariva. And yes, definitely safe to take continuous to postpone menses! ...Read more

Can a17 year old be prescribed with norethisterone?

Can a17 year old be prescribed with norethisterone?

Progestins are safe: Norethisterone is a progestin hormone which can be used by itself or with estrogen like in the birth control pill. It can be used to help suppress ovarian cysts, period bleeding, and to help regulate menstrual bleeding. This progestin when metabolized produces some estrogen so it is likely better than Depo Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for keeping bones dense. All progestins can turn on appetite for some women. ...Read more

I was on micronor (norethindrone) for a year after birth but it made me bleed constantly. I came off 2mths ago and have had no period. Neg preg test. Very unusual! ?

I was on micronor (norethindrone) for a year after birth but it made me bleed constantly. I came off 2mths ago and have had no period. Neg preg test. Very unusual! ?

Off BCP: Not unusual. Birth control pills are hormones and at times when stopping there may be a period of amenorrhea (up to 6 months). Would check urine/blood HCG possible sonogram, which would rule out pregnancy and check for developing follicles. In post pill amenorrhea there are no developing follicles, also your LH/FSH is low. Follow with your doctor. ...Read more

Nursing for full year, no period, on micronor (norethindrone). Once stopped nursing, switched to loseasonique and have had steady menstruation for two months. Normal?

Nursing for full year, no period, on micronor (norethindrone). Once stopped nursing, switched to loseasonique and have had steady menstruation for two months. Normal?

Common.: Breakthrough bleeding and annoying spotting is more common on LoSeasonique because you are not having a regular period every month as you would on a regular type of pill. LoSeasonique is a low dose pill making breakthough bleeding even more common. You might consider switching to a pill that gives you a regular period or try regular Seasonique. Best wishes! ...Read more

Can you take norethisterone to delay period while taking clomid?

Can you take norethisterone to delay period while taking clomid?

No: Do not take any medication to delay menses when taking clomid. This will throw the cycle of clomid off and decrease chances of it working. A person can only take clomid for 3-6 cycles before it stops being effective so it is not worth it to mess around with cycles and waste a cycle ...Read more

Hi there- I need to take 'Ellaone' the morning after pill, but I also want to take norethisterone on Friday as I go on holiday. Can I do this?

Hi there- I need to take 'Ellaone' the morning after pill, but I also want to take norethisterone on Friday as I go on holiday. Can I do this?

YES.: Taking progesterone only to induce a period a few days after using the morning after pill shouldn't be harmful or reduce the effectiveness of either. Progesterone only pills can be used as a "morning after pill" but, since I don't know the strength of your norethisterone I can't instruct you on its use. Sounds like you may need to rethink the effectiveness of the contraception you normally use. ...Read more

My holiday is on 8th Aug for 14 days, started period today (lasts 5 days) can I take Norethisterone so my next period will be early before I go away?

My holiday is on 8th Aug for 14 days, started period today (lasts 5 days) can I take Norethisterone so my next period will be early before I go away?

Probably not: Norethisterone can be used to delay a period, since it maintains the progesterone level, and it's the progesterone drop that brings on a period. However, assuming you ovulate at mid cycle, your body's own progesterone will keep a period from coming on until about 14 days after ovulation. ...Read more
