Can Norethisterone stop your period?
Yes, Norethisterone can stop your period by preventing ovulation and thickening the mucus in the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to travel through. It can also make the lining of the uterus less receptive to implantation. In some cases, it can also lead to the shedding of the uterine lining, which is known as withdrawal bleeding.
What does Norethisterone do to the uterus?
Norethisterone is a progesterone receptor agonist. This means that it binds to the progesterone receptors in the uterus and causes the same effects as progesterone. This results in a thickening of the uterine lining, which makes it less likely for implantation to occur. It can also make the uterine lining less receptive to implantation, and make the uterus hostile to a pregnancy. In some cases, it can also lead to the shedding of the uterine lining, which is known as withdrawal bleeding. These effects make Norethisterone an effective emergency contraceptive.
