Primolut And Pcos

Hi Dr, I've taken Primolut for 7 days and it's been almost 6 days after and no sign of period yet. I have PCOS and don't ovulate and have been trying?
Can I take Primolut N paralell to my homeopathic medicine Agnus Castus? I have PCOS so will the two medicines interact with each other?
It is uncertain, but: Truly homeopathic "medications" are made by repeated dilutions, so that the ingredient is not really in the medication anymore (just the "essence" of it remains). That means there is no active ingredient left to cause any benefit. That also implies the homeopathic "medicine" should be pretty harmless, unless some non-homeopathic ingredients were added. If purely homeopathic, it might not interact. ...Read more

I m suffering from irregular periods and after blood test my dr says I have pcos and give me primolut n. 2 pills a day for 5 days. How many chances to get pregnant if I get periods. Can I ovulate after taking it.
Progesterone: Your doctor gave you Progesterone. This is used to trigger a menstrual cycle.

I am on aygestin (norethindrone) and metformin for PCOS. My doc is hoping that it starts a period. Would light to moderate spotting count as a period?
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
