Don't fret: Resumption of menses/withdrawal bleeding after being on OCPs (oral contraceptive pills), especially progesterone based ones like the mini-pill can be erratic. 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

Should I stop taking Norethindrone? I have 2 period/month now and intestinal issues. I feel like my uterus is bleeding acid - it burns. Help!

Probably: Norethindrone is a synthetic progestin and is only related to progesterone chemically. Depending on why you are taking this medication, progesterone is almost always a better alternative. 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
