Norethindrone stomach pain

I am getting stomach pain from Norethindrone. Will this go away with time? ## Generally most side effects last about 4 to 5 weeks, as your body gets used to a new medication, and then begin to taper off in severity, before disappearing. However, if the pain is severe, you should consult your doctor as this might not be the right medication for you. Have you been taking it with food, or on an empty stomach? Other side effects may include dizziness, acne, weight changes, bloating, and blurred vision. Ref: Norethindrone Information Are you on any other medications?

I have several allergies to medications and I really need to know as much information on the correct medication (Norethin Ace 5mg). Side effects & drug interactions due to the fact that I am on many different medications and also have severe anxiety until I am fully educated on this new medication and before I will even start taking it. Any and all information is greatly appreciated. Thanking you in advanced.....Andi ## Hi, Andi! How are you? The information you've found is exactly what it is, Norethindrone Acetate, with Regestrone, the Norethin Ace is just an abbreviation.

skipped lo loestrin placebo pills no bleeding

I didn’t want to bleed this summer so skipped the 4 placebo pills and started the next month and didn’t bleed for 4 weeks. I just finished the 4 placebos and no blood. I’m worried it’s pushing off the blood. I’m starting the blue pill tonight. Can the body even bleed once the blue pill is in the system? Would appreciate someone’s experience. Thanks ## Hello Momo5, I hope you are having a good day. I'll start by explaining how this medication works. This combination hormone medication is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains 2 hormones: norethindrone (a progestin) and ethinyl estradiol (an estrogen). It works mainly by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation) during your menstrual cycle. Because this medication changes the hormones in your bod...

I try to quit taking norethindrone pain all over

I have been on norethindrone for 5 years from abnormal menstrual bleeding. My doctor told me I could stop taking it at any time to see if I have gone through menopause yet. Both times I tried, my body aches so severely I can barely lay down or even put clothes on without wincing. Is this common? Why would this happen? Any suggestions of how I can stop taking it and avoid this agony? ## Hi Michelle, Sorry to hear about your situation. Based on your story, it sounds like there may be withdrawal symptoms associated with stopping Norethindrone... In such cases, perhaps it would be best to consult your doctor about a tapering regimen in order to help mitigate these unwanted side effects while you slowly titrate off the medication. After 5 years of use, it's likely that your body has beco...

progestin ## I was started on this medication taking 2 tabs BID... It did initially slow my periods down to a drip. My problem is that I noticed that I had began to gain weight. Was that due to the pill?? I had been bleeding heavily for a couple months and had to have other surgery, that is when they took an blood count and had to give me 3 units of blood. I since have stopped taking them due to see if I would continue to bleed, I have had my cycle pretty normal although I thought I would have been starting to go through menopause soon at the age of 52. ## This is a Progesterone supplement and it is often used to try to help a woman restore her natural hormonal balance. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, irritability, mood changes, weight cha...

regestrone 5mg trying to conceive

My wife has been advised to take regestrone 5 mg for 5 days from 18/2, her period is due on 23/02. We are married since 3 years trying to have a baby. Please advise how the use of this medicine helps? ## Regestrone is sometimes used to help with ovulation, so she produces an egg to aid in getting pregnant. I am assuming that is why she was only on it for 5 days, rather than staying on it continuously. Is there anything else I can help you with? ## my gynec has advised to take the medcine (Regrestrone) for 21 days to stop the bleeding and after 2 days i will getmy regular periods is there any side effects ? is this is steriod type? ## No, this is not a steroid, Pumba, this is a hormone tablet.

Has anyone else stopped long term use of Norethindrone

I was put on norethindrone when I was approx. 45 (11 years ago) to stop extremely heavy periods, in an attempt to avoid a hysterectomy. The drug worked well...I haven't had a period in the last 11 years. Problem is my endometrial lining has increased (I was evaluated - no problem) so a good suggestion was made to stop taking the norethindrone. I may be in menopause but diagnostics can't tell because the drug masks what's going on. I've been off norethindrone for a week today. No bleeding, cramps or anything. Just wonder if anyone else has been through this before. It's hard to find any data on the internet and the doctors don't really seem to understand effects from long term use.

Norethindrone 5mg for heavy bleeding

Hi, I had been having very heavy menstrual bleeding for the last 2 months (Dec/Jan) so my dr. prescribed me norethindrone 5mg to take the first day of my period and to take it everyday. I also have the paragard copper IUD (which is partly the reason for the heavy bleeding). I got my period on Feb. 1st and started taking the norethindrone that day and I have been bleeding every day since then (now Feb. 16th). It started out light and it has gotten heavier the longer I have been on it. It is to the point where I am heavier now with the medicine than without. I am calling my doctor tomorrow but he has been out of the office for the last 4 days. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I just stop taking it? What happens if I stop taking it? I started getting night sweats the first day I to...
