Norethisterone To Stop Periods But Weight Gain ?

Aug 25, 2006

I was prescribed norethisterone by my gp, after I went to see her with periods lasting 2 weeks, this started within a year of me being sterilised at the age of 40.

Since taking them I have experienced bad skin, spots, no mood changes,but most of all I have gained over half a stone in 5 months, i have always watched what I eat and still do, I cant seem to move a pound. I am stopping the tablets today, to see if my periods have sorted themselves out, I will be interested to see if the weight comes off, Has anyone who gained weight with these tablets, lost the weight when they stopped.

Ill will keep you posted to see if my weight does return, and what affects I have after coming off them.

Norethisterone While Waiting For Hysterectomy To Stop Periods

I was prescribed this medication to stop my periods whilst I was waiting to have a hysterectomy. It has made me very depressed and I have started to retain fluid, my tummy is very swollen and at times I have felt sick and extremely irritable and aggressive, however my periods stopped straight away, so for the interim it is worth coping with the side effects.

Nuvaring A Way To Get My Sex Drive Back Or Stop Weight Gain?

So I've been on the Nuvaring for 11 months now, this is my 12th starting. Unfortunately I have a lack in my sex drive, my boobs have gone from a C to a DD, I've gained about 10 lbs, I have been getting headaches, and I have a huge increase in my appetite. I know every woman has different reactions to different birth controls. Are the headaches normal? That's my biggest concern and is there anyway I can get my sex drive back or stop my appetite and weight gain? It's driving me crazy, my pants are too tight and I need all new bras, dresses and shirts! This is becoming an expensive prescription.

I was prescribed norethisterone yesterday after not having a period for a year.

Implanon (more Periods Than Regular) With Norethisterone

I have been on implanon for 2.5 years. During this time I had more periods than normal. Due to going on holiday I decided that I would ask doctor to help delay in.

I was prescribed 3 weeks of norethisterone and took it three times a day as directed.

I was told my period should come 2/3 days after I finished the course... Although six weeks later I still have no sign of my period and have pregnancy symptoms such as sore breasts, cramping,bloating, hot flushes, increased discharge and fatigue. Have taken a pregnancy test and it is negative.

What is going on. Has anyone else been in this situation. I am worried sick.

Norethisterone To Delay The Periods With Oxytetracycline?

I am currently taking oxytetracycline to help to reduce a persistent problem I have been having with spots and boils. I have noticed some improvement. In a couple of months I am due to go on holiday and my period is due while I am away. My periods can be really painful and leave me feeling faint for several days. I will be spending a long time travelling so having to go through my period on holiday would be a nightmare. In the past I have used Norethisterone to delay the period successfully with no problems. However I have been advised by my doctor and the pharmacist that I should not take these two drugs at the same time and I don't know what to do. I do not need to use the drug as a contraceptive merely to delay my period. I don't really want to come off the antibiotics for the sake of a holiday but will absolutely dread going if I cannot find a way to delay my period.

53 And Norethisterone For Fibroids - 11 Weeks Of Periods

I am nearly 53 and am anxiously waiting for the menopause. I have been diagnosed with fibroids. I started a period at the end of January and it carried on for 11 weeks with haemorrhages and huge clots. During this time I became anaemic and I have been unable to work since the middle of April. On 24th April I was fitted with a Mirena coil. I have had constant bleeding (though not as heavy as before) and abdominal discomfort ever since. The discomfort has kept me awake at night.

Last week the GP told me to take 3 norethisterone tablets a day to stop the bleeding. This worked at first and the bleeding stopped. I became very bloated though, and today the bleeding has started again. My whole life is dominated by this. I don't know what to do next. I can have a hysterectomy in October - but that's not something I relish!

Has anyone any words of encouragement?

Heavy / Difficult Periods While On Norethisterone For Fibroids

I'm 33 and have uterine fibroids for which I have been taking norethisterone to stop my heavy, prolonged periods. On the advice of my GP I took a break from the tablet, but she gave me a supply in case I desperately needed them. She told me not to take any more for a while as I wouldn't know if the mini-pill (which I was prescribed 2 months ago) was working to regulate my periods and shrink the fibroids. I have started my period now and it's been going on for over a week. I'm in pain, it's heavy and clotting and my moods are all over the place, I'm tired all of the time and I can't go out for too long for fear of flooding. It's affecting my work and my relationship as I feel unattractive and sad all of the time. When I was taking norethisterone I didn't get any of these problems.

Norethisterone :: When To Expect Normal Periods After Coming Off

I took norethisterone for the 1st time last month to delay my period, & I was very happy, worked brilliantly, no adverse effects. I'm now just wondering when I should expect my 1st proper period after the one I had when I came off the drug. Can anyone who's had experience of using it in this way tell me whether it should be just a normal 28-30 day type thing or whether it might come early. I'm just a bit concerned, because I've got my birthday party, which is 24 days from the one I had when coming off Norethisterone & I don't want to be bleeding then. :- Will I be ok or should I get another course for this month?

Late Messed Up Periods After Norethisterone For Holiday

In july i was on a course of norethisterone for just over a week to delay my period during my holiday. After I stopped taking the pills I came on my period 3 days later, which was extremely painful, but lighter than my usual periods. This month, my period is almost 2 weeks late... I haven't had unprotected sex, so there's not a big chance that i'm pregnant.. i will  be taking a test, to make sure, but i'm just wondering if the progesterone pills i was taking could be the cause of my messed up periods?

Carbimazole :: Weight Gain

I have today been diagnosed for the 2nd time with an overactive thyroid.

The first was about 6 years ago and I was put on 25mg of Carbimazole a day. Unfortunately my weight went from a 12 1/2S to 16st once I started the tablets. I took the decision to stop them as I suffered from some of the side effects and my white blood cells were being affected. Since stopping the tablets my weight has gone down (from 16st to 9st) and people say I look great.

I have been told today that I should restart the tablets as my T4 is now instead of the norm of 10 to 25 gone up to 70. I am worried that if I start the tablets my weight will go up very quickly. I have all the symptoms, shaking hands, lump in the throat, can't stand heat etc.

Having been in this situation before I am very worried and not sure what to do even thought I have told my doc my concerns re weight gain.
