    I was fine when i started talking this medication but about a week later i started bleeding and it didnt stop for almost 3 weeks. i told the dr and she said that was normal with the medicine. but when i stopped it the bleeding stopped immediately.. i will not try this drug again. i have had endometriosis for 8 years and i know its suppose to help with that but i would rather not take it..

    I have fibroids,an enlarged uterus and possibly endometriosis.I'm facing a posssible hysterectomy. Been on this med for 21 days, bleeding has gotten lighter, missed a pill for 1 day and had severe bleeding, cramping and passing of large clots again as before the norethindrone. again. No side effects noted. I will see my gyn today to discuss further options.
