No period after taking primolut 5mg for 5 days
1 Reply RSS
Hello guys! I have PCOS and my doctor prescribed me primolut 5mg 1 pill daily for 5 days! I have been taking them for three months. I missed 1 period before I started them due to a horrible side effect on birth control. As a result, my dr. Suggested taking primolut 5m. The first month I started them, I got my period on day 7. The second month I got it on the 6th or 7th day however, I was spotting very dark brown color (almost black) for 5days then I had heavy period for another 5 days. I think that’s because I missed one period one month earlier so my body was getting rid of the old blood. The 3rd month which is this month, I took them for 5 days, I had one brown spot right after I finished the course, and today is day 8 and still with no period! Needless to say, I have all the pm...

Progesterone and bleeding after menopause

My doctor prescribed ten days of progesterone (two pills at night). This was prescribed because I started bleeding after having stopped my period for about a year and a half. I have endometriosis. So, after taking it for the ten days, my period started. I have been bleeding for approximately eight days. A lot of the lining is shedding, I have gushes of blood at times.

Unfortunately, I can't say. It could last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. It depends on how thick the lining had built up that you have to shed.

45 Replies RSS
I have started using oralcon contraceptive pill, I wanna know how they work ## HI, Tshepo! How are you? Oralcon is a hormonal based contraceptive, so they work by adding certain amounts of synthetic estrogen and progesterone to your body to prevent ovulation from occurring each month. That's why you have to take one each day, for 3 weeks until your menstruation week, if you don't, then the drop in hormones may allow ovulation to happen which makes it possible for you to get pregnant.
