i took primolut _N for one week (3 time a day).when can i expect my period.plz help ## HI, Megha! How are you? Unfortunately, there's no way anyone can answer that for you. Everyone is different, so the dosage that worked for one woman may not work for you. If you are very low in progesterone, it may not have been a high enough dose, or you may not have been on it long enough to kick start your cycle. Alternatively, if you're low in estrogen for some reason, then this wouldn't be the right hormone to kick start your cycle. What has your doctor advised? ## Ive been taking Primolutnor for 10 days now and just stopped 2 days ago. When should I be expecting my menstrual cycle? ## 31st july onwards i took primolut-nor 5mg tables dialy once.but 6th august i got the period and also...

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.

Sorry about the dilemma you've found yourself in. And yes, there is always a chance that you could still be pregnant, though it is a very small chance. Emergency contraceptives have a high efficacy rating and then backing it up with the Regestrone for a few days also lowers the risk. When did you stop taking it and have you started bleeding, yet? The Regestrone is a synthetic progesterone and while high amounts are needed to support a pregnancy, the sudden withdrawal of it can prevent pregnancy or cause miscarriage of an existing pregnancy, which is why it's used as an emergency contraceptive. If ...
