How Norethisterone works?

Due to the ability of Norethisterone to artificially maintain the level of progesterone in the body, the lining of the womb is prevented from shedding.

The lining of the womb is sustained by Progesterone. Under normal circumstances, the progesterone level in your body drops prior to your period i.e. the menstrual period begins when the progesterone level drops to a certain point and the lining of the womb is shed. Norethisterone is synthetic kind of progesterone. The lining of the womb is sustained by period-delay tablets until the tablet usage is halted.

Norethisterone mimics the effects of your natural progesterone and so can help regulate the healthy growth and normal shedding of the womb lining. Norethisterone is the active ingredient in Norethisterone Tablets. It is a kind of progestogen which is sex hormones for females. The female sex hormone which is produced by the body is mimicked by this drug. Various kinds of complications in the menstrual cycle can be handled by this medication. Some of which include:

  • painful menstrual periods
  • continuous, heavy or abnormal bleeding from the uterus (womb) not related to a period
  • pre-menstrual symptoms (such as changed behaviour before a period is due, breast discomfort, migraine, water retention or headache)
  • heavy bleeding during a period
  • Norethisterone Tablets 5mg are can be used to postpone the onset of menstruation for special circumstances, such as if travelling, taking part in buinsess or sporting event.
  • endometriosis
  • can be used in advanced breast cancer
Norethisterone is usually taken on selected days during the menstrual cycle, depending upon the disorder that is being treated.To get 17 days of period delay, Norethisterone should be taken for up to 20 days. The drug usage should be started 3 days before the expected beginning of the menstrual period, after which you may decide to use it for as long as you wish within the next 17 days.

Take one tablet three times a day starting three days before your next period is due. Norethisterone should be taken for no longer than 20 days. If you are ordering this medicine for home delivery, please keep in mind that you need to begin the course three days before your period is due.
