I missed 3 pills of Micronor (norethindrone) during my period; will I likely ovulate right away?

I missed 3 pills of Micronor (norethindrone) during my period; will I likely ovulate right away?

Hard to tell: Micronor (norethindrone) is a progestin-only (single ingredient) minipill. It is hard to tell if a woman taking Micronor (norethindrone) every day actually ovulates or not. This pill works in other ways to prevent pregnancy. She is probably more likely to ovulate if she is missing pills. If she misses some pills, she can use condoms for the next 2 days (if having sex)... while also taking the Micronor (norethindrone) every day. ...Read more

I am taking norethisterone and have been for about 2 weeks. Today I had a bit of bleeding even though I didn't stop taking it. Is this normal?

I am taking norethisterone and have been for about 2 weeks. Today I had a bit of bleeding even though I didn't stop taking it. Is this normal?

Yes: Yes, irregular bleeding is expected for the first several months of therapy with a progestin-only birth control pill. It can be quite frequent in some women but generally slows down after 3 - 6 months. After 6 - 12 months of therapy or sometimes sooner, menstruation can stop altogether with regular use, and this is not unhealthy or unsafe. ...Read more

Typically: We can not always predict exactly what I going to happen with Progesterone use. Sometimes it depends on why you are using it. It is not particularly typical to prescribe it days before someone is due to start their cycle. The pills will try and stop your period. Your uterus thinks its time for one. Only one will win. ...Read more

7-10 days: A withdrawal bleed most often begins within 2 to 7 days after completing a progestin but can be as long as 14 days. If you are menopausal, a withdrawal bleed would not be expected. Abnormal bleeding at age 50 is usually evaluated by sampling the endometrium. ...Read more

Breakthrough bleed: Sounds like breakthrough bleeding which occurs when you have bleeding at unscheduled times while on the pill. Brown is simply old blood that has been sitting at the back of the vagina. Often things get back to normal the next cycle. If not then schedule a visit to discuss changing brands or changing birth control methods. This is very common. Other than being annoying it is not dangerous. ...Read more

Call your doc.: Bleeding for more than 7 days, means you need to call your doc to find out what to do next, or if you need to get seen. No one can predict the effect of hormones on periods exactly the first time you have been tried on them. So, since this is not working, you need to try something else. ...Read more
