Hello all, 

 

Just wondering if anyone has had issues with getting their period and was put on Norethisterone to induce their period? 

 

What side effects did you have? 

 

I have never missed my period before and now that i am moving into ED IVF (i just started my tests) i am on day 39 of my cycle and they want to induce it so i can start the BC to get my cycle synced. 

 

Anything helps! 

 

Thanks, 

B

I never had issues with my period but a mock cycle messed me up. I never tried your medication but my RE uses Provera as a first attempt. This one didn't work for me but going on and then off birth control pills did. I assume you will be doing a medicated cycle? It has no impact on outcome if that is what you are worried about.

I'e also never had issues with my periods; however after day 3 testing indicated a high FSH, my RE prescribed a timed cetrotide shot to "re-set" my system.  Period started 4 days after the shot exactly as predicted. I was preparing to go to the mall in white shorts if it didn't.

 

Fingers crossed things turn out for you!

I did a reset with a 14 day course on bcp. No experience with those meds though.
