Is Norethisterone The Same As Provera
Is it ok to take provera (medroxyprogesterone) 10 mg for 2 days and then take Loestrin(ethinylestradiol and norethisterone) afterwards?
I don't know why: I can't imagine why you would want to do this. You can just start the loestrin without needing to take the provera (medroxyprogesterone). You either start it the Sunday after your period starts, day 1 of your period, or mid cycle with the use of condoms for the first package. ...Read more
More effective delaying period for a few days: start Norethindrone 0.35mg bc pills on day 23 of my cycle OR Provera (medroxyprogesterone) 5mg 3x day start 3 days bef period?
Might work: These methods that you mention require a prescription for use and need to be taken under the guidance of a doctor. Your doctor might choose either of those but would likely not start them so late in the cycle as it is likely too late to regulate ...Read more
I took microgynon then micronor (norethindrone). Changed to Depo-Provera provera instead not near my period. Do i need extra precautions for 7 or 14 days?
Pcos- gyn gave me aygestin (norethindrone) 5mg for 5days. Finished aygestin (norethindrone) 3 days ago & still no period. Typical? 5mg/5days enough? Had success w/ provera in past.
Not enough: It might be that a higher dose of Progesterone would work more appropriately. I would call and request 10mg of Provera (medroxyprogesterone) for 10 days. If this does not induce a period, then it is worth a more thorough discussion with your doctor regarding why you are unable to shed the lining, or rather, why there is not lining to shed! ...Read more

Abnormal bleeding: Depo Provera and micronor (norethindrone) are generally very safe methods of contraception with a lower risk of blood clots, heart attack, and stroke than many other methods.

Just one: One course of Provera (medroxyprogesterone) will cause 1 withdrawal bleed. If you take it monthly on a calendar it will cause monthly cycling. if you cycle normally anyway but missed a period, Provera (medroxyprogesterone) taken once will sometimes get the normal cycling started again. ...Read more
Not sure: Doubling the dose by reducing duration to half may not be safe strategy as such medications are start at the lowest dose by health care providers to monitor how well that dose is working for you. You and your health care provider should then decide regular dose for you and talk regularly (every 3-6 months) whether you still need treatment with PROVERA (medroxyprogesterone) or require any adjustment in dosage. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
