Quoting Wanted: #2:" Not sure. Are you on some kind of BC, similar to what they do prior to IVF? Ever since they put me on BCP my periods are very weak and short."
I just googled the meds he gave me this is what it is-
Norethindrone is a form of progesterone, a female hormone. Norethindrone prevents ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). This medication also causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
Norethindrone is used for birth control (contraception) to prevent pregnancy
. Norethindrone is also used to treat menstrual disorders, endometriosis, or abnormal vaginal bleeding caused by a hormone imbalance.
Norethindrone may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medicine
I'm kinda upset knowing its a BCP. He didn't tell me that! He said to take 2x a day and come back in 2 weeks for a check up. He said it would help shrink the cyst. I'm confused now. I haven't been on BC since 2008. I wish he would have told me what the medicine really was. Instead of me finding out online
I've been reading of women that have a 24 cm cyst and normally they are surgically removed. I wonder if thats what is going to happen if it doesn
t shrink? I dont have time to take off work to have surgery. I hate this crap!! I have used almost all my PTO's for re apts and pretty soon I will have none.
