Effectiveness

How Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol Affects PatientsNorethisterone is a synthetic medication taken orally to prevent pregnancy or treat hormone-related conditions such as menopause and endometriosis. It works by altering cervical and endometrial function at the pelvic level, as well as blocking hormones released by the pituitary gland that are involved in the development of eggs. Taking norethisterone, or any other type of combined oral contraceptive, is associated with a small increase in the risk of developing breast cancer. Patients who take this medication should be aware of this risk and perform regular self-exams to check for any masses.
How Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol works in the bodyNorethisterone works by changing the body's hormones to stop pregnancy. It thickens the mucus in the cervix, making it harder for sperm to reach the egg. It also changes the endometrium, making it harder for a fertilized egg to attach. Norethisterone also works on the hypothalamus and anterior pituitary to stop follicle-stimulating and luteinizing hormones from being released, stopping ovulation and corpus luteum development. Lastly, when used as part of hormone replacement therapy, it prevents endometrial hyperplasia and reduces the risk of endometrial cancer.

Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol for "Change of Life" Signs
After being on this medication for a month, I stopped having hot flashes. My cycle started again after three months, which was a bit of a bummer, but other than that I feel great. This has also helped with my hair loss and thinning due to low estrogen levels.

Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol for "Change of Life" Signs
So far, this treatment has been great! I no longer have hot flashes or night sweats, and my vaginal dryness is much improved. The only downside is that I've gotten one yeast infection--but it's worth it to be free of the hot flashes.

Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol for "Change of Life" Signs
I've been taking this medication for a while now, and it's done wonders for my hot flashes. They stopped almost entirely after only a week of use! I'm also happy to report that I haven't gained any weight since starting the med, which was one of my concerns. The only downside is that I've started having some breakthrough bleeding recently.

Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol for "Change of Life" Signs
I started this treatment when I was 38 and now I'm 48. It's helped with hot flashes and night sweats, but unfortunately not with the vaginal itching and dryness (for which I have to use an expensive cream). Recently, I realized that the weight issues, bloating, and swelling are NOT normal despite having an overall healthy diet.

Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol for "Change of Life" Signs
This treatment has been great for my hot flashes. I can sleep through the night now which is amazing. The only downside is that it's given me a bit of gastric trouble and raised my blood pressure and heart rate. I'm going to discuss changing the dosage with my doctor soon.
4Patient Review

Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol for "Change of Life" Signs
Within one week of taking this medication, my menopausal symptoms (hot flashes and night sweats) disappeared. However, the side effects are tough to deal with; I've been experiencing abdominal pain, nausea, and headaches. I'm going to continue taking it in the hopes that my body will adjust to the medication over time because I don't want to go back to having hot flashes and night sweats.
3.7Patient Review

Norethindrone Acetate And Ethinyl Estradiol for "Change of Life" Signs
I've been taking this for just over three weeks now. I haven't had any hot flashes or night sweats, which is amazing, but I have gained four pounds. Not ideal. I go to the gym regularly, so I know it's not from a sedentary lifestyle. Not sure if I need a lower dose or to stop taking it altogether.

After three weeks of use, my night sweats have stopped. However, I've unfortunately gained five pounds. It's a tough decision to make: whether to keep using the drug and risk gaining more weight or go without it and deal with the night sweats again.
