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...

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.
