Take Progesterone Hormone Drugs To Treat Menstrual Problems?
I am 21 years old, I have complaints that my period is not smooth. It could be 3 months or even more I didn’t menstruate. Yesterday I had a consultation with an obstetrician and was given a prescription for NORESTIL 5mg medicine, I have searched many pharmacies but the drug is difficult. Finally, the pharmacist advised me to take PRIMOLUT N 5mg. Is that all right? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Both Norestil and Primolut N contain norethisterone, which is a type of synthetic progesterone hormone that is often prescribed by doctors to treat various complaints, including:
Irregular menstruation Pre menstrual syndrome Endometriosis Excessive menstrual bleeding. Very intense menstrual pain, etc. Progesterone is actually a hormone that is produced naturally in the body. This hormone plays a role in regulating menstruation and pregnancy. The consumption of synthetic progesterone drugs can help change the hormonal balance, so that it can indirectly help make menstrual cycles more regular.
Although relatively easy to find in pharmacies, norethisterone is not included in the group of over-the-counter drugs. Therefore, you should only consume it according to doctor's instructions. Do not forget, in addition to taking medication, so that menstruation runs more regularly, you also need to balance it with a healthy lifestyle, namely by:
Sleep is more disciplined No stress or prolonged anxiety Do regular exercise 3 to 4 times a week Do not consume excessively high-calorie, instant and preservative foods Be more diligent in consuming fruits and vegetables Do not consume alcohol Do not smoke Maintain ideal body weight If after the drug runs out and consistently do The tips above are that your menstrual pattern is still not getting better, don't hesitate to check with your doctor or gynecologist to get the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
