    I'm over 65 with multiple uterine fibroids which causes heavy bleeding with huge clots.This matter affects my quality of life-can't leave home while bleeding so profusely. Been taking Norethindrone for 9 months and don't see any improvement. Been researching side-effects and seem to be suffering from one of the "rare" ones-hair loss. Although a process of aging, I have gone ... Show Full Comment

    I am on this drug to re-gain my periods back after not having a period for almost 2 years. My doctor thinks I have PCOS. (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) I am to take 2 pills a day for 10 days. After I am done with that cycle I should start getting periods. I have 2 more days left. Hopefully it works.

    Just started medication 1 week ago and immediately felt less pain in my uterus area. I noticed a huge difference in my mornings, less headaches and dragging. Have not went thru a period yet, but will rate it again afterwards. I was thrilled to find some relief without pain pills, because I do not like taking pain medication for its harmful side effects.

    I take this for my endometreosis along with Lupron Depot. It has helped a lot with the Hot Flashes and night sweats and moodiness.
