Norlutate Progestin Based Agent
I'm 42 with 25 day cycle using diaghram with gynol. Missed the gynol but used the diaghram on day 13. Going away day 23-25 wanted to take Aygestin (norethindrone). Do I need to be concerned of pregnancy so therefore avoid 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?
I can't take estrogen due to suspected migraines. Which progestin is safest for me, norethindrone, levonorgestrel, or etonogestrel?
Do all progestin-only forms of BC have just 1 progestin available? All mini pills have norethindrone, IUDs levonorgestrel, implants etonogestrel, etc

Iud's are also great while breastfeeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
