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.?

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.

I need birth control, but I don't want weight gain. Which of these components is better? Norethindrone, levonorgestrel, nomegestrol, dienogest.

IUD: Get an iud. Of the pills you listed they're all about the same. An iud has little or no hormones, no effect on weight gain, and about 20x more effective than condoms.

I have the Skyla IUD and before that was on Micronor (norethindrone). In2013 I was 88 lbs in 2014 I was 83 lbs. Could weight loss be because of the hormone progestin?

I have the Skyla IUD and before that was on Micronor (norethindrone). In2013 I was 88 lbs in 2014 I was 83 lbs. Could weight loss be because of the hormone progestin?

No: There is no established relationship between progestins and weight changes, especially weight loss. There is anecdotal evidence that progestin "may" cause weight gain, so weight loss is virtually impossible. Hope this helps.

What is the right dossage of taking Primolut n? And it is safe to take?

What is the right dossage of taking Primolut n? And it is safe to take?

Norethisterone: Primolut n is a brand of generic norethisterone which is a progestin used as a hormonal contraceptive. All medications ; dietary supplements have some risks. Whether potential risks exceed desired benefit is a question to be addressed w/your prescribing physician. Given that it's approved for sale in many countries, i'd say it's relatively safe.

Hi, is it normal to have slight periods like pain while using primolut-n 5mg twice a day or should I increase the dose?

Hi, is it normal to have slight periods like pain while using primolut-n 5mg twice a day or should I increase the dose?

Prob not related: Cramps are not a typical side effect. You should not change, adjust or alter the medication without discussing it with the doctor who gave it to you. I would look for other causes of cramping as it is not likely related to Progesterone pills.
