Took utovlan for aweek. Had very heavy bleeding since IV stopped. Never taken utovlan b4. Female in my late 20s, have had pcos in the past. Why is this?

Took utovlan for aweek. Had very heavy bleeding since IV stopped. Never taken utovlan b4. Female in my late 20s, have had pcos in the past. Why is this?

To help....: Stabilize bleeding.

In women who do not ovulate, including those with pcos, the lining has continuous build from estrogen stimulation. As the lining continues to build (i refer to this as bricks)...You need mortar to stabilize the bricks or they'l crumple (ie bleed). Utovlan, a Progesterone (mortar), keeps the bricks together. Once you stop, all the bricks shed together to minimize bleeding. ...Read more

I'm on micronor (norethindrone) birthcontrol, I stopped mid pack and didn't get any breakthrough bleeding. Why?

I'm on micronor (norethindrone) birthcontrol, I stopped mid pack and didn't get any breakthrough bleeding. Why?

Possibly: The micronor (norethindrone) (as most ocps, including progestin-only, like the micronor (norethindrone)) causes thinning of the uterine lining, so it is possible that your body did not have enough lining built up to have the period. If you have a history of irreg. Periods, then it may be due to that as well. ...Read more

Micronor (norethindrone): As with all progesterone only contraceptives, abnormal bleeding is a side effect. This could mean no bleeding at all or bleeding every day, or anything in between.

What might cause midcycle bleeding? . I started Micronor (norethindrone) 1 1/2 months ago. My last period was a week ago. I have polyps and one ovarian cyst.

Progesterone only: Micronor (norethindrone) doesn't contain estrogen, only progesterone. For this reason it doesn't give you a regular period each month. Your periods can be somewhat random while you are on this medication. It can come more than once per month and the duration of flow may be inconsistent. If you want one period a month, you may want to be on a pill with both estrogen and progesterone. ...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!

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

Depends: How long have you been on it? Have you missed any pills? Missed pills will cause abnormal bleeding. Also this could be your regular period. The micronor (norethindrone) prevents pregnancy primarily by thickening cervical mucous so sorry can't get in, not by preventing ovulation and preventing you from bleeding. ...Read more

Withdrawal bleed: Progestins (aygestin, norethindrone) help with frequent heavy bleeding when due to irregular ovulation. The women bleed unpredictaby because they don't get the regular sloughing effect of a period. Progestins, once stopped, force a 'normal' menstrual bleed, which clears out the uterus so no further inappropriate bleeding occurs. For costs, you need to call your pharmacy. ...Read more
