Hi doctor,

I am taking tablet Primolut N 5 mg three times a day for bleeding. I am using it for a short-term period. Once my bleeding stops, I will stop using it. Can I take Primolut N 5 mg along with my regular oral contraceptive pill?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Primolut N 5 mg (Norethisterone) is a hormonal medication used to delay periods and after stopping it, it can cause withdrawal bleeding within one to two weeks and can cause unscheduled bleeding or irregular periods or spotting. When you are taking oral contraceptives pills along with it, it can affect your menstrual cycles. Both the medications will interact with each other.

Oral contraceptive pills are cyclic combined hormonal contraceptives pills that not only provide contraception but, also gives you cyclic bleeding. You can use both medications separately or one medication at a time. Take Primolut N 5 mg twice daily from the day 4 to 24th day or use only combined oral contraceptives cyclically. It would be better if you send your detailed history.
