Primolut N

by Janine Laeuger
(Melbourne, Australia)

I was recently prescribed 15ml/day of Primolut N to stem bleeding. It has done that. I am a 55 year old post menopausal woman who recently bled heavily after 12months without a period.

A vaginal ultrasound determined that the walls of the Uterus had thickenned to 15ml. There is no malignancy (Estrogen dominance). The recommended treatment is a hysterectomy. I have been taking the Primolut N for around 2 months now and feel so much better in many ways. Depression has disappeared, muscle aches have disappeared, my brain is no longer as foggy, the bloating has stopped. Although I am not sleeping as soundly.

I have made enquiries about 'bio identical' therapy but have found it is EXPENSIVE and not on the Health List. I am not working and simply cannot afford this large monthly/bi monthly amount.

There is no doubt Primolut N has been beneficial to me.

Primolut N
by: Wray

Hi Janine. It's such a pity progesterone isn't on the health list, like so many natural nutrients which benefit us far more than drugs. I must admit to being concerned you've been given Primolut, as it's norethisterone, a synthetic progestin. It does come with adverse side affects, I do hope you've been told this. If not please see here. And here.

Progesterone has so many benefits, one is in ageing. There is evidence from studies it helps with nerve degeneration, skin, anxiety, Alzheimer's and more. It's wonderful for skin, maybe you could consider using it in place of your current skin care? I wish I could help you afford it. Take care, Wray

Primolut N to Stop Bleeding
by: miss claudia

I recently had a period that would not stop. 7 days in (mine ususally only last about 4) and I was still on a maxi tampon and pad every hour. It was horrific. Went to a GP who prescribed PN, took it for 24 hours and the bleeding stopped dead.

Turns out I had a uterine fibroid that would not stop beeding. Had a D&C and took Primolut for 3 weeks and had another normal period.

Worked like a charm for me.

Can't stop bleeding

Can't stop bleeding
by: Wray

Hi there Progesterone will stop it, but the amount has to be high. Oestrogen is a mitogen, causing cells to divide and multiply, vital once a month to stimulate the endometrium each month to grow and thicken ready for a possible fertilised egg. But too much and the lining builds excessively. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP?s) are enzymes that break down protein. They play a role in the breakdown of endometrial tissues at the end of the menstrual cycle. If they are over active, as would be the case with an excess of oestrogen in the body, (oestrogen stimulates it?s production), the result is a pathological reaction such as inflammation and excessive bleeding. Progesterone suppresses both oestrogen and MMP's. It?s only when progesterone levels drop at the end of the cycle that the MMP?s can get to work and breakdown the lining causing our monthly bleed. But with oestrogen continually stimulating more lining and the MMP's, plus low progesterone, bleeding continues. I've found about 400mg/day progesterone is needed to stop the bleeding, once stopped the amount can be reduced very gradually. For more info please see this web page we have on How to use progesterone cream. Please have a vitamin D test done, it appears you must have a very low level if you are having heart problems. Please see these papers here and here. Please also look at the Vitamin D council web site for more info. You might also consider taking the amino acid taurine, this is vital for the heart, helping to calm it down amongst other things. Please see this excellent paper on taurine here. Take care Wray

Trying to get pregnant
by: Anonymous

I need to use that medication now, but I am seriously considering start trying after that to get pregnant... I have stoped taking my birth control pills 3 months ago while my husaband was away, and now we want to start trying... Does it affect my chances of becoming pregnant? Or may have side effects related to that?

Trying to get pregnant
by: Wray

Hi there I'm not sure what medication you are referring to. If it's Primolut N then it will stop your chances of becoming pregnant, as it's a contraceptive. All contraceptives can cause adverse side effects, please see our page on Contraceptives. Have your cycles returned to normal since stopping the BC pill? If they have the chances of you falling pregnant are higher than if not. Progesterone can help regulate the cycle if not, for more info please see the page on How to use progesterone cream. But before you do please read this page on Oestrogen Dominance. Finally we do have a page on Pregnancy. Please read through it as it explains how to use progesterone before and after conception. Take care Wray

pms
by: Wray

Hi Mrs M As you can see from the above answers I gave, Primolut N is a contraceptive. For more info on these please see our page on Contraceptives. It will prevent you from having a baby, and I don't believe it will help the PMS at all. It stops ovulation, which means you will be making no ovarian progesterone. This is always low in PMS, so it will reduce what little you have been making, even further. Take care Wray

Menstruations
by: Wray

Hi Ms M Primolut, like all contraceptives, forces the cycle into 28 days. If yours is longer or shorter it's not advisable, in fact it's not advisable for anyone. Please see our page on Contraceptives. Skin problems are caused by excess insulin, this increases testosterone levels, which in turn causes spots, acne, oily skin, facial hair and loss of scalp hair. These are not necessarily all experienced, but can be. To prevent skin problems it's essential to lower insulin and testosterone levels. Please see our page on Acne. Also the page we have on Insulin Resistance. Take care Wray

still bleeding
by: Wray

Hi Elaine I'm not in favour of primolut, it contains norethisterone (also known as norethindrone) and is therefore a synthetic progestin. It does come with adverse side effects too, see here and here. It contains a very high dose at 5mg/day, some only contain 0.35mg/dose. The smell could be coming from a bacterial infection, as the blood discharge never has a bad smell. It might be an idea to have it checked. Progesterone also stops bleeding, although I've found 400-600mg/day is needed initially. The amount is then reduced slowly over a few weeks. You might like to read through our page on Peri-menopause.

I'm 39 and have been having problems with my thyroid. My doctor changed my dose and my periods went wild (I was a text-book 28 day cycle) until they stopped altogether. My gyno prescribed primolut for four days as well (am only on second day) and she told me to wait 10 days. My concern is that the dosage is very high (2x5mg in the morning and 2at night.) Is this normal, anyone know?

by: Wray

Hi Helen As I say in so many comments on this page, please avoid all synthetic Contraceptives, they play havoc with our body. Particularly disrupting the cycle, especially when coming off them.

by: Wray

Hi there I'm pleased your period came again, but please consider using progesterone if it should stop again. Primolut n is a synthetic hormone, and it's not giving you a normal bleed. If you are suffering from irregular periods or sometimes they stop entirely, there is something upsetting your natural cycle. It could be a lack of vitamin D, please have a test done. For more info see the Vitamin D council and GrassrootsHealth websites. Or a lack of progesterone, see our page on How to use progesterone for more info. Take care Wray

delaying periods
by: PG

hi... my wedding is scheduled for the 9th of april and my period starts on the 16th, my husband will only be with me for 2 weeks after the wedding and has to leave the country for a few weeks after... i went to an OB to get advice on delaying my periods for around 10 days or so... she prescribed me Primolut N, 3tabs/day starting 6 days before menstruation starts and to stop when i want the bleeding to occur...

first question is...can i start taking Primolut a day before the wedding so it can act as a contraceptive as well and delay my periods at the same time?

second question is that what other option do i have? will natural progesterone be able to delay my periods? or any other safer drug?

Mar 07, 2011
delaying periods
by: Wray

Hi PG Primolut does need to be taken as your doctor says, you won't get protection taken too late. Progesterone would stop the bleeding, but you have to use 400 to 600mg/day. Initially it can upset the cycle too, so I can't guarantee you wouldn't bleed. Unfortunately there are no safe drugs that control our cycle, please see our page on Contraceptives for more info. If you want protection, then I suggest the copper T IUD, it leaks on progestin into the body. Take care Wray

...
by: PG

Thankyou so much for your reply... however i'd like to add another question... if i start taking primolut N thrice a day, one day before intercourse, will it act as a contraceptive as well as eventually delaying my periods in later days or do I need to start taking it a few days before the wedding for it to work? Im actually hoping i can just utilize primolut N as a contraceptive as well as a bleeding postponer instead of using something else alongwith it for contraception...
only planning on taking the medication for 2 weeks, so tackling both things with one med would be helpful if possible.

Hi There,

I am a women aged 34 - I have one child delivered naturally now aged 8.

In May 2010 after having severe pelvic cramps not unlike labour pains I ended up in surgery - I had a complex cyst (possible borderline tumour) on my right ovary 12cm 200ml, and a cyst 7.5cm 150ml on my left.

The surgery resulted in the romoval of my right ovary and tube and the cyst from my left ovary. At the same time i was also diagnosed with CIN3 of the cervix which was later removed using lletz proceedure.

Since all of this my period is extremely irregular - one month arriving spot on 28 days and normal flow and time. The next will be late, and heavy - to the point at christmas of 5 weeks solid bleeding, with pad lasting maybe one hour, heavy clotting.

In the last 10 months I have been prescribed Primulot N 15mg per day to stop the bleeding.

The gyne has again yesterday prescribed Primulot N 10mg per day taken for 21 days and restarting after day 5 of period - for a period of three months to try and "restart" my function.

This is driving me nuts!! I am cranky, angry, tired, depressed and frustrated.

I feel there must be something better for me out there than all of these hormones!

Before this i was not even on contraceptives

Any advice would be appreciated

Hi PG I wouldn't advise using 3 in a day! It contains a very high dose at 5mg/day, some only contain 0.35mg/dose. Primolut N contains norethisterone (also known as norethindrone), see here and here for more info. I wish I could be of more help, but I'm so against all forms of drug contraception. I get endless queries from women who struggle to get their cycle regular again after using them. Take care Wray

Hi there Ovarian cysts are an indication your oestrogen is too high, progesterone too low. As you might have gathered from the comments I've made on this page, I'm not in favour of any Contraceptive, unless it's the copper T IUD. To my mind you need progesterone, it does stop heavy continual bleeding too, see here. It does take time, but to my mind worth it, as it's natural and very safe too. Oestrogen is a mitogen, it stimulates cells to grow. Vital in stimulating the endometrium each month to grow and thicken ready for a possible fertilised egg. But in excess it stimulates cells to continue growing. MMP?s are enzymes that break down protein. They play a role in the breakdown of endometrial tissues at the end of the menstrual cycle. If they are over active, as would be the case with excess oestrogen in the body, as oestrogen stimulates their production, the result is a pathological reaction. A high level of MMP's can lead to inflammation and excessive bleeding in the uterus. If a low level of progesterone is present, and a high level of oestrogen, the lining will continue to grow. With a high level of MMP's the lining will also continue to break down. Progesterone suppresses both MMP's and oestrogen. It is essential to use a high amount of progesterone, between 400-600mg/day. If the bleeding is continual, use it both daily and hourly. Using it hourly keeps the level high throughout the day. If there is a cycle, it?s best to ignore it and use the progesterone daily, hourly too, until the bleeding is under control. The progesterone can be used to regulate the cycle once bleeding has stopped. See here and here. For more info please see this page on How to use progesterone. Take care Wray

Hi Wray,

Thankyou for your time and considered response.

My Doctor has advised that if the primulot N does not work after three months then the next course of action is using a Merina device - I am really against this action as years ago i had a bad hormonal reaction to an implanon implant.

Can you provide more information on the Copper IUD? I suffer from a bad allergy to Nikel and am wary of using anything metal based.

I will be replacing the primulot with my cream when it arrives

Thanks again

Hi there I would avoid the Mirena, as it leaks a progestin into the system, see here. There is more info on our Contraceptives page. Unfortunately I don't know the composition of the copper T, it would depend so much on which manufacturer you got it from. In the States there is only one device, the UK has 10. It's used in Europe and China too, who presumably have their own manufacturers. Generally they are made of polyethylene with fine copper wire wound round. The following are some sites with info on it's use, see here, here, here. These papers not yet on the contraceptives page, see here, here, here and here. Take care Wray

uterine fibroids and need a hysterectomy
by: Anonymous

I am a 43 year old that has just been put on Primulot N thrice daily until bleeding stopped then continue on twice daily for 21 days then stop until I get a period then take 1 daily from day 5 of my cycle.

I started out on my thrice daily and the bleeding stopped after 3 days so I commenced taking twice daily only to have heavy breakthrough bleeding on day 7 from start of the initial treatment it. I stopped taking the Primulot N thinking that this was my period (because according to my normal cycle I was due)and the gyno didn't explain to me about any possible breakthrough bleeding.

I had been bleeding heavily and passing a lot of blood clots for the previous 3 weeks prior to seeing the gyno because my mirena coil had dislodged itself because of multiple fibroids and had to be removed. The mirena coil had been in for 6 months. It is now day 16 from initial and I have a headache for past 48 hours and a bloodshot left eye. Is this because of the Primulot N? I am 5ft tall and weigh 50 kilos. In the past 24 hours I have cut back the Primulot N to 1 daily.

To Stem Bleeding
by: Janine Laeuger

I have written I was on PN to stem post menopausal bleeding.

I was actually on it for a number of months ... maybe 12.

Since my last notes on this site, I have visited another Gyn who wanted me off it.
She said we don't usually leave people on PN to stem bleeding for that time.
The Dr. did another D&C (second in 12 months) together with pathology from the lining of the uterus. (15ml thickening)
As well, another two ultra sounds were done which looked good. Ovaries could not be seen this time but one 12 months ago showed 'simple' cysts.
Another two ultra sounds will be done in February.

I am no longer bleeding.

The Dr. says that the Uterus/hormones somehow become reliant on the Progesterone and often without it a person will just start to bleed again without having a D&C...?
Maybe in the case of my condition..?
The Dr. also requested bloods. I think they were specific to hormones.
I also have regular 'full bloods' done and donate my blood as well.
It's also a very thorough screening. (as you would hope).

It's great to be able to compare notes !
chees, Janine

I want my period to be a week early
by: Desperate

Hi,

I am 35 and I keep having irregular periods. I would miss two or three months in a row then it would come normal for a two months or more.

My problem is I had my period on 28th last month and my boyfriend is due on the same 28th this month and I so want to spend time with him but afraid my period could spoil this. Can "primolut-n" help to advance my period? If so, how do I use it?

THANK YOU for an urgent answer.

Hi JM Has anyone checked for PCOS? Has anyone checked your vitamin D levels? This has a huge bearing, as it's vital for ovulation, conception and a successful pregnancy, see here, here, here, here, here, here and here. These are excellent videos to watch too, see here and here. It would be far better to use progesterone and vitamin D to help your cycle, rather than a synthetic progestin. All drug based Contraceptives have the potential to harm. Please have a vitamin d test done. For more info on vitamin D levels, test kits etc see the Vitamin D Council, GrassrootsHealth, Birmingham Hospital and Vitamin D Links websites. Blood levels should be 70-100ng/ml or 175-250nmol/L and not the 30ng/ml or 75nmol/L most labs and doctors regard as adequate. The minimum daily dose should be 5000iu's per day, although the latest research indicates it should be 10,000iu's per day, see here. We do have a page on Pregnancy you could look through. Take care Wray

Hi JM I'm not sure what you want me to explain. Progesterone is often given after embryo transfer. If you read our page on pregnancy, you will see I recommend using it prior to conception. I also believe it should be used for at least 2 months, if not 4 months. You'll have to ask your doctor why he's only giving you the progesterone for 21 days. Take care Wray

Hormonal breakout?
by: Anonymous

Hi
I was prescribed primolut n by my GP to delay my period as i was going on holiday for a week. It's the first time I've ever taken any hormones (natural or synthetic) and the dose i was prescribed was 1x5mg three times a day for eight days. While I was taking the pills I noticed that my skin cleared up more than it has in over a year despite my doing nothing to change my skincare routine, but after I stopped taking it yesterday I started to break out almost immediately around my chin area. I have heard that breakouts around the chin are often hormonal, and I guess my question is really whether it could be possible that these changes in my skin could have been caused by my taking primolut n or if the timing is a coincidence? I am 16 and, being a teenager, I almost always have some acne, however my breakouts don't tend to be very severe.
