Hello doctor,

I am 36 years old. I am taking Sysron NCR 10 mg for heavy bleeding. I had unprotected sex on the 12th day of my periods. How to prevent my pregnancy?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Sysron NCR (Norethisterone) is basically a hormone which is used to control heavy bleeding during periods.
  • I am afraid that Sysron NCR does not have any contraceptive action in it.
  • You must take precautions to not get pregnant during its use. Your partner can use barrier methods like condoms.
  • You can also try oral contraceptive pills which will also bring down the flow during your period. It will act in two ways.
  1. Contraception
  2. Regularizing your cycle and bringing down flow.
  • You must take doctor's advise before starting any new drug.
