pcos symptoms, overweight, Norethisterone
by Marcia Jones
I have tried to conceive for many years and never been lucky. I am over weight which seems to be playing a big part.
I have been diagnosed with pcos symptoms but don't actually have pcos (complicated I know). I have had cysts removed from my right ovary many years ago ( I am now 36).
For many years now, to control very heavy bleeding, I have to take Norethisterone medication. This is to stop any period or bleeding in between. The periods/bleeding are so heavy its beyond being able to cope with at all times. Thankfully this medication stops all the bleeding and controls it. But as I am sure you are aware taking Norethisterone on a long term basis will never help me to become pregnant.
Reading on your site I am seeing that I have probably a very low progesterone level. I have had so many tests over the years with hospital appointments I am not sure if I was ever tested for this or not.
As I am now 36 I feel my time in trying to conceive is getting shorter.
Is there any advice you can give me as to what and if anything I could take so I do not need to take this Norethisterone any more? It has to be something that will not make me bleed totally out of control.
