Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been experiencing irregular periods for the last two months. I have also taken the medicine containing Norethisterone but have not gotten my periods. I have a history of medical conditions, including PCOD, although my periods were not delayed earlier. Please help me.


I appreciate that you have chosen icliniq.com for your medical needs.

I am here to give you the best care possible.

Irregular periods or menstrual cycles that occur less frequently than usual or vary in length, can be caused by a variety of factors. Some possible causes include:

  1. Hormonal imbalances: Changes in the levels of estrogen and progesterone can affect the menstrual cycle. This can be due to conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), thyroid disorders, or hormonal contraception.
  2. Stress: High levels of stress can disrupt the menstrual cycle and cause irregular periods.
  3. Weight fluctuations: Rapid weight gain or loss can affect the menstrual cycle.
  4. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as endometriosis, fibroids, or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), can cause irregular periods.
  5. Medications: Some medications, such as antidepressants, antipsychotics, or blood thinners, can affect the menstrual cycle and cause irregular periods.

If you have been taking Norethisterone for any reason and have not had a period for two months, the medication may be causing your irregular periods. Norethisterone is a progestin-only hormonal medication used to prevent pregnancy and treat certain gynecological conditions. It can also cause irregular periods or amenorrhea (absence of menstrual periods) in some women.

I hope you are satisfied with my answer. For further queries, you can consult me at icliniq.

Thank you.
